NYC Gets First Laotian Restaurant With Khe-Yo

By James Mulcahy
July 31, 2013

You can find a world's worth of cusine in the Big Apple, but until now the city that never sleeps didn't serve Lao cuisine. Enter Marc Forgione, who just opened Khe-Yo, a new TriBeCa venue that will dish out sharable dishes from the Southeast Asian country that can be paired with an all-French wine list to NYC audiences. Forgione has enlisted executive chef Soulayphet Schwader to come up with the menu, which implores dines to dive in ("sticky rice tastes better when eaten with your hands"), is moderately priced and contains offerings like bamboo-grilled quail and pork jowl red curry (it's a swine-heavy selection). You can take a look at the full menu here (157 Duane St.; 212-587-1089).
