Vanessa Dang’s contemporary Vietnamese cooking is precise and confident, and her dishes seem rigorously thought out even as they’re easy-to-love delicious. Dang and daughter Vi Nguyen have opened a beauty of a neighborhood bistro that’s half bar, with an easygoing small-plates format that serves the food’s bright flavors well. Ethereal filet mignon carpaccio shows off fusion’s unrealized potential, and sautéed prawns and scallops in coconut curry (Dang’s signature dish) teeters on the knife’s edge of delicate and gutsy.
