Red Curry Hot Pot from King Biscuit

I was in the lower part of the Heights and popped in to King Biscuit (1606 White Oak Drive 713-861-2328) for a cocktail and a bite to eat. I ordered a gin and tonic and the red curry hot pot. The dish came out in the cheap red and white plastic bowls you get at Asian markets. The glass noodles were chewy and tasty, but the red curry, thick with coconut milk, could have used a little more salt and spice. A big red chile would have been a good contrast to the sweet richness of the coconut.

I slurped up the curry and noticed a banner on the wall above the bar with a familiar image. It looked like the logo from Les Halles that's printed on their cookbook and also on the chef coats you see Anthony Bourdain wear -- a skull with a chef toque on and a chef knife in its mouth. Is it a coincidence, or has The Biscuit borrowed the logo?
