Many New Orleanians are just a stone’s throw from delicious Vietnamese food. But Lilly’s Café in the Lower Garden District dishes out pho with some of the best broth in the city, simmered for more than eight hours and served velvety smooth in a vast bowl of rice noodles. If the steamy New Orleans heat is too overwhelming for broth, opt for lighter menu items like the summer rolls with shrimp, pork, ham, lettuce, mint, and vermicelli noodles, which are equally satisfying and a lot less scorching.
