THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Annam Restaurant Vietnamien Restaurant Review

: A small beer and wine list complements the bites at this charming restaurant, which is the brainchild of Andrew and Myanh Nguyen and his sister Phoung. Annam, named for ancient Vietnam (An Nam), shows a definite French influence in the chic setting of pale yellow walls, wicker-backed chairs, carefully set tables and white china. Like the wine list, the menu is nicely pared down to a handful of dishes that typify the fresh, delicate cuisine of the Southeast Asian country. Must-try items include the crispy rolls with tamarind dipping sauce and spring rolls with hoisin sauce. Soups and noodles are prominent and include the classic pho ha noi, a Hanoi-style beef noodle option, and hu tiu sai gon, a chicken broth-based soup from Saigon with shrimp and pork. Main courses include coconut-chicken curry, shrimp marinated in lemongrass, curried fish on vermicelli and honey-roasted chicken. Bouquets of fragrant mint, basil and cilantro accompany main dishes. Service is courteous and inviting at this impeccable spot.
