I've been meaning to try ugly baby on smith. it's the guy who had khao soi in redhook, the menu says one dish is brutally spicy.
I havent been yet, but plan to go when we return from Italy. Just want to clarify that this isn't the guy who was dumped by the owner of Khao Soi in Red Hook. This is her cooking partner, who worked with her in the kitchen. She's a co-owner of Ugly Baby but doesn't live in NYC longer, so this guy is the co-owner/chef.
