La Cod

 

Chef Hai of Vietnam Masterchef fame has just opened a new seafood fusion restaurant in the old French Quarter of Hanoi. Mixing traditional Vietnamese cuisine with Japanese salads, French seafood stews and paella from Spain, the fare combines European cooking styles with condiments from Asia and locally sourced seafood.

Cutisun

Owner and executive chef Hoang Nguyen opened Cutisun just over three years ago. Since that time, it has expanded from a modest single-room diner to having five dining rooms spread across two restaurants opposite to each other. The name, incidentally, comes from Hoang’s childhood moniker — cu ti sun refers to a small boy whose teeth have gone black from too much candy.

My Chicken Run

The name threw me; I must be honest My Chicken Run is not a name to inspire culinary confidence. Perhaps because I have mucked out actual chicken runs, I associate the name with, well, unappetizing things.

Oven d’Or

“Sorry, I’m eating lobster thermidor and drinking chardonnay,” is not a text message I ever thought I would send in response to a coffee invite, until I went to the wine brunch at Oven d’Or. This place understands Sundays on a level that I have not quite seen before. There’s a fondue station with not one, but two kinds of chocolate fountains, a crepe and waffle counter, an entire suckling pig laid out for carving, an a la carte grill, a sushi bar, and, of course, the help-yourself booze table.

Lavastone BBQ & Cocktail House

Situated in a prime location in District 1, Lavastone BBQ & Cocktail House blends into the bustle of the area with its full-length glass front framed by black-painted steel. The space inside has an American industrial ambience combined with classic European-style twists, making the place both attractive yet unusual. The Japanese elements — Japanese rice wine kept cool in a container at the front door and the upstairs furnished with Japanese-style chairs and tables, adds to the effect.
