Thai-Inspired Feast in a Tiny Space

New York chef Colombe Jacobsen lays out her genius strategy for whipping up dinner for six in a closet-sized kitchen and tight dining space.

Serve this!

Jacobsen prefers ready-to-pour drinks that suit her menu's theme: here, Asian beer for dinner—she likes Singha or Tiger—and ginger tea with dessert. "I love a fancy cocktail," she says, "but my rule is, the less bother, the better."

On a silver tray, even beer and pint glasses are festive.
