Diablo Review

Vietnamese goes urban chic at this restaurant and lounge, where techno pulses on the stereo and lengths of twisted wood in lit wall niches decorate the room. Food here is both creative and delicious. Lettuce leaves peek out of fresh rice paper rolls like treetops, garlic noodles get a rich twist from a sprinkling of parmesan cheese, and sweet-and-sour dill soup is the Vietnamese equivalent of borscht. If you like meat, don’t miss the tumbling dice, decadently large cubes of filet mignon steak gently sautéed and served with mixed greens. On our visit, the waiter’s insistent explanations grated at times, but we forgave him after we tasted the FBI—fried banana with ice cream—made with vanilla ice cream. Lunch and dinner daily.
