My mother-in-law introduced me to this place, and we had a wonderful meal of small Vietnamese dishes. The people-watching is phenomenal, too -- a fascinating parade of well-coiffed humanity. Our low-volume snark earned undying love from our waiter, and he gave us a free (and delicious) blueberry gelato!
reservations are a must for lunch or dinner. I always end up fighting for a seat at the bar because i don't get a reservation. Get the green papaya salad, shaking beef and clay pot chicken... those are the staples. after that, experiment a bit... you can't go wrong.
