Round woven lamps cast a soft glow, a colorful mural adorns the back wall, and there are a handful of beers on tap behind Mau's gleaming wooden counter. Purists may scoff at this hipster version of a Vietnamese joint but, if they just gave it a chance, the food would convince them otherwise: the restaurant is a collaboration between the former Slow Club chef Sante Salvoni and Tin Vietnamese owner Hung Dang. The deftly spiced pho bo (served with pickled onions) and gingery pho ga are particularly satisfying, especially when topped with a dollop of the restaurant's homemade sriracha.
