This Laotian hot spot serves up vibrant family-style plates brimming with tart and spicy notes that pack a punch—make that a Bang Bang, actually, as in the house sauce of mixed chilies, cilantro, fish sauce and garlic served to diners as a welcome, along with a basket of sticky rice. The food is worth braving the wait and decibel levels, so sip on a craft brew or cocktail before digging in. While market bowls are all the rage at lunch, there are other delights to be enjoyed—like wide rice noodles and bits of slow-cooked pork in a coconut yellow curry with herbs and bean sprouts. Banana leaf-steamed red snapper with crisped artichoke hearts and Chinese broccoli is another beautifully prepared item. Bright and bitter grapefruit sorbet is a fitting finish.
