Leah Cohen is the Chef and Owner of Pig & Khao restaurant, located on New York City’s Lower East Side, and Piggyback Bar, located in Jersey City. Opened in fall 2012, the intimate, 74-seat Pig & Khao serves Southeast Asian cuisine influenced by Leah’s Filipino upbringing and her annual expeditions to the region. Acclaimed by publications including the New York Times, New York Magazine, and The Huffington Post, Pig & Khao has been praised for its Asian street food-inspired fare, casual, inviting ambiance, and inventive bar program. Launched in 2017, Piggyback Bar is Leah’s second restaurant and features a menu of elevated American bar fare fused with Asian flavors. Recipient of a 2013 StarChefs Rising Stars Award, Leah’s main cooking philosophy is to stay true to authentic Southeast Asian flavors while incorporating classical western techniques.
