Top Chef-er Leah Cohen and the Fatty Crew are just about ready to open Pig and Khao in the former Falai space on Clinton Street. The new décor, as you can see, does away with the former restaurant’s sleek white look in favor of bold colors that complement the Southeast Asian food. Speaking of food, expect Thai- and Filipino-influenced sharable plates like grilled pork neck and watermelon salad; crispy garlic with sweet-and-sour liver dipping sauce; and crispy quail adobo with Szechuan peppercorn, coconut vinegar, and a soft-boiled quail egg. To drink: canned beer, “eclectic wines,” and soju and wine cocktails. There will also be self-serve “all-you-can-drink” specials on tap. The spot will officially open to the public next Tuesday but, in the meantime, scope a few shots of the space, straight ahead.
