Need to find a Vietnamese restaurant that is semi upscale, any ideas?

      Second Le Colonial. Went a year or so ago. Was quite nice - in fact that reminds me that perhaps I should head back soon since it's so close to work.

        3rd Le Colonial,, but I prefer Indochine, which has a more lively , "happening" atmosphere.

        1. re: foodwhisperer

          Is it still "happening"? I haven't been in....years

            Amazingly, it is still packed with a "fashionable" crowd. Food is good, but not as good as it was in the McNally days. The palm tree paint job, I think is the original, but doesn't look old and shabby.

    2. Omai in Chelsea has a very nice ambiance, I haven't been in years so I can't vouch for the food.

        Still pretty good food. I guess one's idea of "upscale" can vary. I don't think it would compare to Indochine or Le Colonial for that, but for tasty food in a nice enough setting, it works.

        Edited to add:

        Just noticed your post below. If it's not upscale enough I can't be of much help.

        1. Been to Omai nice but not upscale.

          1. What you want doesn't exist. Vietnamese is not strongly represented in NYC.
