Have the urge to wax long and poetical, but instead I will say a couple things and expand later: overwhelming urge to return here, after just the first few bites of food. Beautiful and comfortable dining room immediately transported me out of Bushwick, to where I'm not exactly sure. Owned by a Slanted Door alumnus. Wines made for drinking! A little magic happening over here, I suggest capturing some.
Dishes seemed firmly rooted in tradition but tweaked to appeal to my non-native palate for Vietnamese. Everything was complex and delicious, nothing I can imagine putting a newb off.
Pictured: shrimp and okra, eggplant. Not pictured, braised pork belly with quail eggs and spring roll.
