Green Tangerine epitomizes the adventurous sense of many Hanoi restaurants, turning out wonderful variations on classic French dishes with a distinct Vietnamese touch, such as the chicken in mango, rum and cardamom sauce with a spinach tart and mango slices. And while the main reason to visit is the menu with its innovative offerings, the location is also quite idyllic, with a cozy interior of dark furnishings and an atmospheric patio, surrounded by the walls of a colonial villa. The experience doesn't come cheap, but if you need to economize, go for the two-course set lunch for around $10.
