Asian Fusion, Barbecue
Price Scale

Reconcepts can be dicey, but Eric Banh turned Seven Beef, his upscale Vietnamese steak house in the Central District, into a more rugged space where smoke pervades everything from cocktails to Southern-style brisket to the chicken in the fried rice. The result is a little bit Southern, more overtly Asian, and sometimes just straight-up beefy; dinner might start with green papaya salad, then move on to spare ribs and collard greens and fish sauce wings. When this unlikely combo works it works, as in a side of bacon that’s thick as a deck of cards, its usual maple flavor offset with nuoc cham. The umbrella-dotted patio is absurdly pleasant.
