Vice’s Munchies series recently followed executive chef Phet Schwader of Tribeca’s Laotian restaurant Kye-Yo. Throughout the video, we see Schwader hanging out with friends and enjoying the night at some of the Village’s best spots, but also learn how to make some traditional Laotian and Thai food.
After meeting up with partners Marc Forgione and Nick Bradley and friend Cassie Pallas at Khe-Yo in TriBeCa, the crew heads over to the East Village to hit up Motorino for some pizza. After downing two pies and some beers, it was then just a jaunt around the corner to Filipino gastropub Jeepney. The Kamayan feast there is something to behold, with banana ketchup ribs, fried snapper, pork shoulder, and mussels all served on a bed of rice—and eaten with your hands only.
Chef’s Night Out is a great peek at how some of New York’s best chefs eat and drink around the City.
