Michael “Bao” Huynh is working with the group that owns Calle Ocho and BLT Prime on this replacement to Rain— he tells us he’s carrying eight dishes over from his previous restaurants, Bao 111 and Bun (you’ll recognize the baby-lamb lollipops), as well as adding a host of others. We’re seriously contemplating booking the chef table and calling three days in advance for the suckling pig — it’s marinated in salted plums, fish sauce, and lemongrass, per Vietnamese tradition. You’ll also find what Bao calls “authentic Vietnamese flavor, in my own style” in a duck breast that’s seasoned with lemongrass, ginger, and olive oil and cooked sous vide. Bao tells us he loves duck heart (and who doesn’t), so he’s serving it in a hash along with duck liver. Finally, take a look at the interior — it comes courtesy of RKIT, the firm responsible for Allen & Delancey. Congratulations, Upper West Side, you have here a perfectly sexy late-night go-to — it’ll be open till 1 a.m. Monday through Wednesday and till 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Find us at the six-seat roll bar enjoying summer, hand, and spring rolls.
