Everything about the place is smart, starting with the lofty, industrial, urban-chic décor that bespeaks big city, late night, youth, energy, and fun. Comestibles are categorized into noodle bowls and rice bowls (three of each); "raw" and "grill" items (five of each); and a quartet of "basics." Just about every dish delights: two fluffy, white, taco-shaped roasted-pork buns; shreds of braised short ribs compacted into a "meat loaf" with smoky plantain sauce; a BLT with brown-sugar-cured pork belly on griddled bao buns with a small jar of ginger-pickled cucumbers and cauliflower alongside; steak chow fun; pork ramen with organic egg; and so forth. Prices represent incredible value - dishes start at $3 and rise to only $16. Pabst Blue Ribbon is just $2, and Sapporo on draft costs just $3. Mini nondairy ice-cream cones go for a buck apiece, but try the homemade carrot cake or peach crumble - like all else at Gigi, delectable and a great deal.
