Mekong Restaurant: The Scene Continues
Available only for lunch, this porky banh mi is not half bad.
It may be a long time since you've heard anything about New Mekong Restaurant , the Thai-Vietnamese spot that once graced Nolita and now sits on the corner of Sixth Avenue and King Street. It's been open for a few years, ancient in this day and age of food blogs clawing for the newest, hottest next thing. Most restaurants that don't maintain their buzz in gimmicky ways, or aren't totally awesome, fall to the background. Mekong, however, has managed to not only hang on, but to thrive.
