Chao Chao Restaurant Review

: In the former Rat Cage Records space (where the Beastie Boys recorded) is a Vietnamese restaurant called Chao Chao. Chef/owner Stephan Brezinsky, formerly of Il Mulino and Pok Pok, cooks up dishes like beef cheeks rendang and skate wing grilled in banana leaf. Dear Irving’s Tom Richter is the man behind the cocktail list.
