Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

“Clean yet complex” sums up this Argyle spot’s namesake soup, which bears a hint of sweet star-anise flavor, subtle beefiness and silky fresh noodles. Those same noodles serve other dishes almost as well, but our two favorites don’t include them. The banh mi thit nguoi nails perfectly crusty bread, salty ham, a slather of earthy pâté, plus crunchy daikon, carrots and sliced chilies. And the massive lotus-root salad is the best around, with plump, fresh shrimp, plenty of crunchy peanuts and tangy, herb-flecked dressing.
