2017 Best Vietnamese Restaurant

Pho Bistro

Don’t be fooled by its strip-mall location: Pho Bistro serves up uncommonly good soups, stir-frys, and other Vietnamese specialties. Be sure to order a bowl of pho, with flavor-rich broth that takes hours upon hours to prepare. Add whatever proteins you’re craving (squid? flank steak? tripe?), and slurp it up with delight.
