Chef-owner Louis Kao has just opened a second location, called Noodle Theory Provisions, which is three times the size of the original space, and with a full bar. The large space is warmly lit, sending a golden hue out into the street. The new place has a full bar, and my El Niño — mezcal with grapefruit juice, Thai basil and cayenne — was a delightful way to sit out the rain.
