Nice Meal at Le's in Allston

We headed over to Le's in Allston last night. This is my first time at one of these places since they changed from Pho Pasteur, and the first time I have ever been to the Allston location.

The place has a weird setup, with three dining rooms, one of which is totally cut off from the other two (I'm guessing the space used to be two or even three separate stores before becoming Pho Pasteur/Le's?). We grabbed a table in the middle dining room and ordered a steamed summer roll app (pretty tasty, with the spicy peanut sauce helping make it stand out a bit from some of the others I've had elsewhere). For entrees, we had the grilled chicken vermicelli and the cubed filet mignon. The vermicelli was good; the sliced chicken was flattened a bit and had a nice consistency, and the rest of the ingredients seemed pretty fresh. The cubed filet mignon was better, IMO, with a delicious mix of pepper, garlic, and soy sauce, and lots of veggies mixed in, including Chinese broccoli, red peppers, and mild onions.

Prices were ok, with the total being about $36 including a couple of drinks.

I know that some people aren't all that impressed by Le's, but I thought it was pretty good. I think I still prefer the Vietnamese places in Fields Corner, but the atmosphere in those places is lacking and the neighborhood can be a bit rough late at night, so Le's will probably remain an option for me when I have a craving for Vietnamese cuisine.
