Pratt alum Pascale Tran opened Tigerlily, a bánh mì shop, because she felt it was a shame that the cheap Vietnamese sandwiches weren't available near her alma mater. Tran's mother and aunt flew into New York to help her open the shop, and the menu is a familiar one: They will offer a variety of sandwiches (all $6.50) from the classic Vietnamese pork and pâté, coconut-curry chicken, grilled lemongrass beef, and a vegetarian option with smoked tofu and a melody of mushrooms. Tran also plans to serve a traditional shredded green-papaya salad with spicy beef jerky or tofu, and fresh fruit shakes of mango with coconut and chili. A good Vietnamese shop must sell coffee, says Tran, and her cold-brewed iced version will be made with Irving Farm Coffee beans.
