French-colonial Vietnamese meets Soho, the interior of this restaurant is covered in fabulous banana leaf wallpaper, candle-lit white clothed tables, ceiling fans, and the most magnificent and stunningly enormous fresh floral arrangements on the bar. The setting is dark, tropical, and intimate (note: you sit dangerously close to other patrons, so don't air any dirty laundry).
Of course the night never ends with just dinner in New York City. Our 'asian-themed' evening took us for cocktails to Buddakan in the Meat-Packing district. An absolutely mammoth space with two stories, and an Imperial China vibe, you may recognize the 34 seat banquet table in the main dining room as the site of Carrie Bradshaw's wedding rehearsal dinner in the first Sex and the City movie.
