Fodor's Review

Chef Andrew Le's casual noodle house attracts downtown office workers by day, but by night it becomes a creative contemporary restaurant, pulling in serious chowhounds. Drawing on both his Vietnamese heritage and multicultural island flavors, the talented, playful Le is a wizard with spice and acid, turning out dishes of layered flavor such as "coffee can bread" (which is baked in Café du Monde coffee cans) with chicken-liver paté, Kyoho grapes, and pink peppercorns. Another innovative dish is porchetta with pomegranate-arugula salsa verde. At the end of 2013, pastry chef Rachel Murai—of Nobu Waikiki and Vintage Cave fame—joined the staff, adding innovative and sophisticated dessert offerings, such as a roasted coffee kabocha (pumpkin) dessert with crisp coffee meringue, candied hazelnuts, orange gelée, and pomegranate on Frangelico cream. The restaurant operates a popular food stand at the weekly Blaisdell Center farmers' market.
