Profile

In a dark, industrial corner of Bushwick, the son of a Chinese refugee has opened a Vietnamese eatery and cheekily named it after his father’s mispronunciation of “français.” As you enter, you’ll see a lightbulb hanging in a pagoda-shaped birdcage and hear loungey French music that quietly fills the sparsely decorated interior. At lunch, you can slurp up beef-noodle pho and munch on Dad's shrimp roll, which tastes like a crab cake and has a crispy tofu skin wrapping. At dinner, tender little cubes of filet mignon come to your table fresh from the wok. The proprietor's father started his new life in Vietnam shipping catfish to Saigon, but the pungent taste of the Claypot Catfish is not for everyone. Try the mackerel with olive pâté instead: The arboreal fruit nicely complements the fruit of the sea.
