Le Red Tiger
Le Red Tiger serves modernized versions of Vietnamese street food in a pub atmosphere that reads a lot like an updated American diner -- with checkered tile floors, bright colors, and a counter-wrapped open kitchen. Beers are on tap, and an intriguing list of Asian-inflected proprietary cocktails are served, like the F.O.B. (fusing gin, Thai basil syrup, lime and egg white). The food is just as appealing as the cocktails, with a menu focusing on less common Vietnamese plates, from beef jerky-papaya salad to snails sautéed in lemongrass, in addition to a cast of special Vietnamese soup dishes.
