Profile

This venue is closed.

Don't let the gangly young models and their scruffy escorts deter you. Even these diet-dazed divas can't resist what emerges from chef Michael Huynh's Vietnamese kitchen: Exceedingly fresh, Hulk-size summer rolls. Plump chicken wings that come with a Scotch-bonnet dipping sauce that elicits a warning from the waiter. And grilled short ribs skewered onto lemongrass stalks—a highbrow steak-on-a-stick that may make you wonder whether Jean-Georges has a moonlighting gig. Fusiony entrées creep past the $20 barrier, but the noodle and "traditional style" portions of the menu fall well beneath the mark (try the sputtering ironpot chicken). And save room for sublime desserts like black-sticky-rice pudding, just like the models do.
