july 10-14

chef lily tran presents a summer menu that celebrates the fresh flavors and delicately balanced contrasts that define vietnamese cuisine. each course is a playful dance between the five complementary vectors of herbal aromatics, spicy heat, sweetness, sourness, and sauciness. delightful contrasts continue as crispy pairs with tender, sweet balances savory, and fresh offsets fermented.
