I am still liking Mai House much to the detriment of my pocketbook. Maybe it's the cocktails lubricating me up before the meal, but I actually like it, much to my original hesitation.
BUT, my significant other has decided that neither of us can continue to spend this much when there are local Vietnamese dives. Therefore, are there any quality cheap Vietnamese places in the Tribeca area? I can head to chinatown for some crossover cuisine, but anything specialized?
