Beyond the generic-sounding menu, bright lights and gaudy décor—the walls here are bright purple—lurks a solid Vietnamese restaurant. Steer clear of the Chinese-style stir-fries and Thai-style curries, and opt instead for more traditional Vietnamese dishes like greaseless, crisp spring rolls and succulent grilled lemongrass chicken. Try a noodle soup or rice-flour crêpe, both of which delicately bundle chicken and shrimp.
