THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Blue Velvet 1929 Restaurant Review

: We like this simple restaurant for its fresh approach to Vietnamese fare and appealing, minimalist décor that is tinged with a tropical flair. While some Vietnamese menus around town go on for pages, Blue Velvet’s has just over 20 dishes. A classic pho (beef and rice noodle soup) is always a good way to start, though more adventurous guests may want to try the ech chien bo (crispy frog’s legs with leeks). Entrées are highly seasoned and rather upscale, like whole prawns with crushed ginger and scallions on vermicelli or filet of sole and coconut milk steamed in a banana leaf.
