While there's plenty of good food in Little Saigon, I wouldn't say there's a plethora of "finer" choices. I have friends coming in from out of town whom I haven't seen in a while. I don't want to take them to some hole in the wall, where I know we will be able to get some great chow. In this case, ambience is also important. In addition, they are Vietnamese, too, so they already know typical, hole in the wall, Vietnamese places (not necessarily in SoCal) where you get great food at amazing prices. Not a whole lot of surprises there....
I've heard that Brodard Chateau is quite nice. I've never had anything but the Nem Nuong spring rolls at Brodard and my parents had a Bun Cha Ha Noi that they said was downright dreadful. So, what else might be good at their more upscale sister restaurant?? I'll be paying, so I wanted a heads up on price since I know it's a bit pricier. My inner chowhound is categorically averse to being shafted à la Crustucean, but I want to provide a pleasant evening. How does Brodard Chateau compare to S Vietnamese Fine Dining in food, ambience, and cost?? What other options might there be in Litte Saigon?
Thank you, all!
