Citysearch Editorial Review – Chef Michael Huynh’s (BarBao, Baoguette) sleek pan-Asian eatery in midtown east draws a subdued crowd of suits and locals with the allure of pork belly skewers and toothsome noodle soups. The globe-trotting menu promises plenty of flavorful bites, including a Singapore laksa (although it might disappoint those looking for some serious spice) and a lemongrass short rib dish that manages to be both tender and tasty. The decor might be an acquired taste, as the bright lighting shines an unflattering light on an otherwise cool, modern dark wood-accented space.
