Finally we got a table at Laut. M. had the glass noodles lunch special and I tried the pork chop, both quite nice. If you were going to share them, I highly recommend starting with the glass noodles and then moving to the flavorful pork chop. I did the reverse and found the glass noodles bland, though M. said they were not. I also recommend take-out since the noise level was infernal. We heard the conversation next to us better than we did each other, the entire meal punctuated by pulsing music.
