The Tyger is from the people behind Chinese Tuxedo, and like that Chinatown party restaurant, this pan-Asian spot in Soho is usually filled with groups drinking colorful cocktails in a more-colorful dining room. From Phnom Penh fried chicken with lime and white pepper dipping sauce to spicy curry loaded with crispy confit duck and a not-quite-liquid, not-quite-solid coffee egg tart, everything on the menu is absolutely excellent. Bring a group, sit at a table near the retractable floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to Centre Street, and order as much of the menu as you can, colorful cocktails included.
