AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): Nothing better than a meal here on a hot, sticky New York summer day. It can easily bring to mind a classic old-time romance novel set in Indochina.
Twirling overhead fans, tall ferns, black and white historic prints and an original tin ceiling painted deep, brick red with a black border give this dining room the exotic romance of French Colonial Indochina. The menu centers on excellent Vietnamese cuisine with specialties such as crisp-seared whole red snapper, claypot chicken and ginger-roasted duck. On a chilly day the pho noodle soup is soul-warming. Service is subtle and refined for either refined business lunches or romantic dinners.
