Outside the Crescent City, it’s not widely known that New Orleans has a huge Vietnamese population. The delicate, refreshing flavors of Vietnamese food can be a welcome counterpoint to traditional Creole fare. Across the river, the original location of this family-run legend has been destination dining for decades; now it has an outpost smack in the middle of the French Quarter, and it's very, very good. A fresh shrimp spring roll or pork bun is quick, reasonable, and delicious; at $9, the grilled chicken vermicelli bowl is a tasty bargain. In cool weather (or after an indulgent night), the steaming, deeply flavored beef pho hits it just right. Wine and beer only.
