Haisous Vietnamese Kitchen
Faithful Pilsenites already know all about this chic Vietnamese outpost’s utter mastery of Southeast Asian flavors, but for those not yet aware, the multi-course Christmas dinner is the perfect excuse to dip your toes into these seductive waters. Vibrant Papaya Salad lays the groundwork for cheffy takes on Ribeye Steak, Clams in a chili-ginger-lemongrass broth, Banana-Tapioca Pearl Pudding, and much more.
Cost: Packages start at $75 per person (serves 2 -10)
How to book: Order pick-up via Tock.
Co-owner Danielle Dang’s Pilsen hotspot masterfully straddles the line between approachable and upscale, with a polished, modern aesthetic supporting a bevvy of cheffy Vietnamese standards. Expect impeccably crisp chicken wings smothered in caramelized fish sauce and chili alongside bright pan-roasted seafood, veggie-laden curries, and fragrant Bun Cha Hanoi swimming in charred pork broth atop a bed of silky rice noodles.
How to order: Available for Restaurant Week dine-in reservations via Tock or pick-up and delivery via Caviar, DoorDash, Tock, and Grubhub.
