This place bustles with activity and quick table turnover, and it’s easy to see why, because the French-infused Vietnamese dishes here are delicious, so eaten up in a flash. Heat-seeking flavorists will be well served to follow the spicy route, selecting from among the stellar starters and openers. Lightly poached prawns, mint and roasted peanuts add zip to the zesty green papaya salad; caustic peppers give the lemongrass chicken a fiery undertone; a spicy lime dipping sauce enlivens just-right fried salt and pepper prawns; and the wok-fried garlic beans with tofu star the freshest bean curd this side of the Pacific. . Dinner Wed.–Mon.
