Profile

This venue is closed.

There are certain essential things no neighborhood should be without: a good corner deli, a Starbucks alternative, and a place to go for the delicious Vietnamese sandwiches called bánh mì. Such was the sad situation in Turtle Bay until Bôi to Go, a snack and sandwich shop from the owners of the Vietnamese restaurant Bôi. Chef-partner Tamie Trans-Le breaks new bánh mì ground by substituting avocado (something most Vietnamese regard as dessert, not a savory condiment) for the typical aïoli, and she accessorizes her idiosyncratic chicken version with arugula, basil, and port-enhanced pâté, in addition to the traditional daikon and carrot. The streamlined storefront, fleet of toaster ovens at the ready, also offers a Chipotle-esque do-it-yourself option: a choice of baguette, flour tortilla, rice bowl, or salad greens, matched with one of several proteins and sauces.
