Price Scale

The red boat-shaped restaurant credited as the city’s first pho shop has transitioned to the next generation of owners, and to a big, blocky structure just across the parking lot. The rich, delicately spiced bowls of pho are the same; the new menu of bar snacks walks a tasty line between classic Vietnamese flavors and American bar food. Definitely order the fries with herbaceous garlic-lemongrass dipping sauce, and if you can tear yourself away from the classic pho, the menu’s other noodle soups are definitely worth exploring (load up on napkins if you go for the short rib pho, complete with a caveman-worthy hunk of meat perched on top. All this casual goodness happens in the perpetual summer of the airy dining room, preferably with a cocktail from the bar.
