I used to live in Chinatown/Tribeca in Manhattan and I miss the excellent Vietnamese (like Pho Bang and Pho Pasture on Baxter and Bayard). The examples I've tried in LA have been passable but not inspiring. Anyone have any solid suggestions?
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
