Chef Ngam Prom, who cut her teeth at Spice Market and Perry Street, turns to the food of her homeland, Thailand, for her first solo effort—a rustic 70-seat restaurant in the East Village. The Chiang Mai native makes the food of her childhood with chefly tweaks. Khao soi, the traditional northern curry with egg noodles, is updated with the additions of lobster and banana blossom chips. The sour pork sausage, sai oua, is reconceptualized as a beef burger flavored with lemongrass, chilies and kafir lime leaf, and topped with cilantro-lime mayo.
