NYC: Laotian Hotspot Khe-Yo Opening Lunch Sandwich Counter Today

Craving a meal at one of New York's hottest restaurants but finding yourself short on time – or the necessary funds? Khe-Yo, New York City's first Laotian-inspired restaurant, is opening a walk-up counter — aptly called Khe-Yosk — today, September 11. The restaurant had previously been open only for dinner. The new lunch menu will feature a rotating selection of banh mi sandwiches.

Restaurateur Marc Forgione and chef Soulayphet "Phet" Schwader will offer many of the ingredients available on the full menu, like Berkshire pork belly and Jurgielewicz duck, in their foot-long sandwiches. The meats will be presented with vegetables on a crisp, buttered and toasted French baguette and served alongside a side of housemade jus for dipping. All sandwiches are priced at $11.


Monday – Friday, (11:30 a.m. – 2:30 pm.)

157 Duane Street, New York, NY 10013
