THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bao 111 Restaurant Review

: After a round of musical names (the restaurant started life as Vicala, then changed to Sen), Bao 111 has settled on a winning moniker and nouvelle Vietnamese menu. Since it's open until 2 a.m. Monday to Saturday, the bar (replete with special house cocktails) attracts as much action as the dining room. The kitchen turns out food that is relatively authentic without being overly challenging. Heaping bowls of noodles are the cheapest option, though it would be a shame to miss pricier dishes like duck breast seared in a spicy lemon grass sauce and served with sautéed French green beans and mushrooms. The zesty basa fish curry is also tasty. Desserts here are noteworthy as well, including black sticky rice pudding or jasmine ice cream.
