Laos in Town

April 2021

Current Status: Coming in the wake of the success of Thip Khao, Laos in Town is another recent addition for Lao food in D.C.  They took over a large space with a large patio in NoMa, including a bar that faces out as well as in.  Owned by Nick Ongsangkoon, a partner in the underrated Soi 38, they got some early buzz, including from the Post, but then the pandemic hit.  They held on and even managed to snag a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2021.  Based on take-out alone we give this spot a thumbs up. They are open for Dine-in, Take-out and Delivery.  They also have T-shirts.
