Viet Cafe

Welcome to VietCafé, the first restaurant to open in Manhattan, owned by a native and working Vietnamese chef. The chef specializes in the country’s three distinct regional cuisines: North, South and Central Vietnamese. VietCafé serves traditional Vietnamese cuisine in a contemporary setting. The cuisine is oriented for balance and nutrition, using an abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables for texture and color, and marinating meats in spice and herbs rather than relying on excess butter and fats for cooking or for enhancement of taste.

Viet Cafe
Modern and vibrant, the woman on the massive billboard at Hanoi airport welcomes travelers with enthusiasm and a view toward the expansive, colorful land that is today’s Viet Nam.
It is this powerful image, chosen by Owner/Chef Lan Tran Cao, that you first encounter at the entrance to Tribeca’s VietCafé. It is the perfect representation of all that is contemporary about the restaurant, and yes, all that is exciting about traditional Vietnamese cuisine.
VietCafé serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine in a modern, stylish setting, and at affordable prices.
 We are, as the billboard states, “your destination for the new millennium".
he VietCafé dining experience is authenticated by the importation from Viet Nam of all artifacts, décor and furniture from stools to lamps, countertops to tables, all designed by Chef/Owner Lan Tran Cao for the purpose of maintaining a contemporary, fluid interior that keeps with the feng shui principles of balance and harmony.
A warm, cream-colored wall, for example, parallels the earthiness of exposed brick.
The bar is molded from maple indigenous to Viet Nam. The mirror towering behind reflects a cascade of royal-yellow Vietnamese silk lanterns, custom-made with the insignia of longevity peering over the room.
Lending further visual interest is the characteristic height of the tables, stools and banquettes throughout, built as they are to observe the manner in which Vietnamese diners sit nearer to the earth than we do in the West. A cozy table-for-two and Lan’s communal chef’s table are well within sight of a skylight and bistro kitchen. For the truly curious, guests are welcome to be seated at the kitchen’s extensive counter and witness the making of all the colorful and traditional dishes of Viet Nam.
In a city whose avenues are full of ethnic specialties, VietCafé is doing more than serving a part of the world on a plate to New Yorkers.
The restaurant is adjoined to Gallery Viet Nam, where guests can linger over wine or exotic cocktails before being seated for dinner, and view the works of some of Vietnam’s most distinguished painters and artisans.
Lan’s objective is to offer a taste of travel through the art and flavors unique to this land, promoting the two ventures together because “both the cuisine and the visual arts reflect the culture and history of a country.” Gallery Viet Nam and VietCafé together create a sensory experience both visually and tastefully rich.
VietCafé features authentic dishes from North, South and Central Viet Nam.
The foods of Vietnam are prepared with both French and Chinese influences that date back some 2,000 years and one can see these reflected in the dishes served at VietCafé.There are starters like Bo Bia, steamed jicama rolls of scallion, peanuts, eggs, and sweet sausage with hoisin and chili sauces and Banh Cuon, a steamed rice crepe, stuffed with ground pork, shitake mushrooms, fried shallots, crunchy bean sprouts and fresh mint.
Then there are traditional Vietnamese sandwiches like a grilled lemongrass beef burger with roasted garlic and Vietnamese basil, which is served on a baguette, lavishly dressed with a spread of liver pate. Hanoi’s regional soup, Pho, similar to France’s Pot-au-Feu, combines the simmering broth and hearty beef typical of 19th century French cooking with ginger, anise and rice noodles from Asia. VietCafé’s version of this fragrant and healthful soup employs 13 spices and herbs, including robust Viet basil and Vietnamese cilantro. Another French-influenced entrée is Thit Bo Khoai Tay, skirt steak sautéed with sweet onions and watercress and served with crispy hand-cut fries, which is Viet Nam’s own interpretation of steak frites.
