The Resy Guide to Vietnamese American Food in New York

By

New York City has never had a reputation for its Vietnamese cuisine, unlike other major U.S. cities, but that’s beginning to change. 

Today, the city is home to a number of exciting pop-ups and restaurants, many of which are helmed by second-generation Vietnamese Americans who are bringing their own unique perspectives to Vietnamese American cuisine.  

From making bouncy, chewy pandan bánh bò nuong and labor-intensive rice dumplings to tender confit duck necks and vegetarian bún bò Hue, these chefs are challenging us to rethink our own conceptions of contemporary Vietnamese food, and American food, for that matter.  

In short, there’s never been a better time to eat Vietnamese food in New York City, and most likely, it’s only going to get better from here. Consider the following suggestions a great place to start.
