Since the food at Beaker & Gray combines playful new flavor profiles with ingredients from around the world, Brian Nasajon has the opportunity to pair all kinds of combinations with fish sauce to create fresh, unexpected results. His glass noodles are a Grade-A example. "This dish is very floral and bright, with lots of herbs, vinegars, and chiles; fish sauce brings the undertones and body." In a pinch, substitute Granny Smith apple for papaya, and zucchini for the chayote.
