Neng’s is a queer-owned restaurant that packs in a ton of bright colors and tenderness—think emerald-tiled walls, a Christmas-red countertop bar, and a massive painting of the chef’s mother—into its stylish 17-seat dining room. The menu features heartfelt notes from the chef, whose food often blurs the lines between Filipinx and Southern cuisine, fine dining, and home cooking. A few staples include the adobo oyster, monkfish laing, and the funky, unforgettable queso ice cream. Iced beer is a charming pairing with any meal, and the cocktail menu is also killer, with savory, briny drinks like the soy-washed adobo martini and Thai chili-infused whiskey collins.
