La Vie good for a first timer?

  • j

Never had Vietnamese food, and was wondering if La Vie in the Richmond is a good place to start. Any suggested meals? Thanks.

  1. I love La Vie, and everything I've had there has been excellent. The specialty, though, is roast crab, which I like even more than Thanh Long's. If you like crab, call ahead and ask if they have it that night.

    Unfortunately, it's been a while and I don't recall what all else I've had there. My feeling is it's hard to go wrong, though.
