Bunker Vietnamese became a destination dining spot when it opened in industrial Ridgewood in 2013, and the regular crowds eventually prompted chef/owner Jimmy Tu to expand into a larger space in Bushwick in early 2017. Tu, whose resume includes Eleven Madison Park, maintains an elevated take on Vietnamese street food with dishes like a clean and light chicken pho and lemongrass short rib banh mi. The colorful, converted warehouse space has an outdoor patio and a bar that’s three-times the size of the Ridgewood location. Live music and weekend DJs set a party tone that fits right into the neighborhood.
