Fodor's Expert Review Elizabeth Street Café
This clever nouveau Vietnamese-French concept from chef-restaurateur Larry McGuire—of Lamberts and Clark's fame—sits on the corner of South First and Elizabeth streets as a cozy little café serving a delectable menu of banh mi and pho as well as a fantastic array of French pastries, including daily macaron specials. Fresh shrimp spring rolls, pork meatball banh mi (served on fresh baguettes), and spicy beef and pork bun with thick, soft airy noodles are safe bets. In addition to sake, beer, and creative punch offerings, the wine list is short and sweet but brimming with French-only wines that pair beautifully with this cuisine. Breakfast is served daily and brunch is offered on Sunday.
