THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cyclo Restaurant Review

: Cyclo manages to serve authentic Vietnamese food in a setting that is more contemporary restaurant than ethnic dive. Its kitchen captures the clean, fresh flavors of Vietnamese cuisine with dishes like a salad of shredded green papaya, chao tom (sugarcane coated with shrimp paste and grilled), excellent pho (oxtail broth with rich vermicelli and pieces of beef) and crispy snapper with a chili sauce. Unlike the rooms at its Chinatown counterparts, Cyclos' room is spare and pleasant, with moody lighting and a vaguely tropical color scheme. There is a small wine list that complements the food.
