6. Red Medicine 8400 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211

Finally opening today in the old Hokusai spot after literally months of teasing, RM's a cavernous, mainly Viet-influenced Asian-staurant featuring reclaimed, barn wood and exposed concrete walls, an eight seat stained-wood bar and cushy window banquettes, run by two Michael Mina vets and the Umami guy -- a man everyone wants to meat.

7. 9021Pho 490 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 (Beverly Hills)

From the former chef of Michela comes this nook-like, modern casual soupery dedicated almost entirely to brothy Vietnamese deliciousness, with variations including Pho Ca (sliced tuna, onion, bean sprout, basil, and chili w/ chicken stock).

8. Xoia 1801 W Sunset, Los Angeles, CA 90026 (Echo Park)

Xoia's a cozy, Vietnamesery from a guy who trained as a visual artist, only to realize he was much better as a chef when he cooked for his fellow artists on a retreat, and they dug the food much more than his work; perversely, he's decorated the restaurant with his abstract art, because who needs gallery space, when you've got galley space?
