This passion project of Chef Thai Dang and wife, Danielle, offers refined Vietnamese cuisine in a plum setting. The menu, divided into five sections, is filled with wonderful, lesser-known (and possibly unexpected) dishes you won’t want to miss. The restaurant offers many seating options: an open kitchen fringed with comfy seats; a bar area for cocktails and perhaps an order of those famous chicken wings; as well as two dining rooms, one with communal seating. Don’t leave without sampling the goi vit (duck salad); cánh gà chiên (chicken wings with fish sauce, garlic and chili); or eggplant and octopus, laced with coconut cream and fried shallots. For street food, specialty coffee and quenching cocktails, visit their next-door coffee shop, Cà Phê Đá.
