I live in Los Feliz and have lived in Los Angeles for 15 years. During that time, I have eaten at many Vietnamese restaurants, but have not found any that I would consider somewhere that an "out of towner" would enjoy. I regularly have clients who fly in that I would love to "turn on" to Vietnamese cuisine, but feel the restaurants I know would either not offer the atmosphere they would expect, or are a fusion concept, and therefore not the authentic food I would like them to experience.
Anybody out there in Chowhoundland have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
