Elizabeth Street Cafe

Elizabeth Street Cafe Review

This clever nouveau Vietnamese-French concept from chef-restaurateur Larry McGuire—of Lamberts, Perla's, Clark's, and Fresas fame—sits on the corner of South First and Elizabeth streets as a cozy little cafe serving a delectable menu of banh mi, pho and bun as well as a fantastic array of French pastries from pastry chef Alexandra Manley. Fresh shrimp spring rolls, spicy pork meatball banh mi on a fresh baguette, and spicy beef and pork bun with thick, soft airy noodles are safe bets. The wine list is short and sweet but brimming with perfect French-only wines that pair beautifully with this cuisine. Waitresses are cleverly decked out in matching tailored dresses in individual brightly colored patterns with comfy Tom's shoes to complete the look.
