I love Vietnamese food and will be craving it even more as the weather gets warmer. I know there are many decent restaurants and I've been to quite a few of them- Doyers, Saigon Grill, Nha Trang, Mekong, etc. They are all good and usually satisfy my craving, but I find the food is very similar. Is this due to (a) a lack of quality Vietnamese in NYC, (b) the simplicity of cooking this cuisine, or (c) me missing something???
Are there any places out there that really STAND OUT from the rest (think Sripraphai as compared to the rest of NYC thai- I'm not looking for something that stands out in a fusion-y way like Bao)???????
