@ Riverside Renaissance
In celebration of Jul. 4, the Renaissance’s ground floor restaurant, Riverside Café, is bringing in all things American. Think imported US steak, grilled to your taste, Napa Valley wine and of course, that most American of beers, Budweiser. The dinner-only deal runs until from Independence Day itself until Saturday Jul. 11 and costs VND1 million++ (with a glass of Napa Valley wine) or VND1.25 million ++ (with a free flow of Napa Valley wine, Budweiser or soda).
@ La Habana
La Habana has been hosting Word editorial meetings for some time now, so we can easily attest to the quality of its food. It’s got paella, tapas and mexican grills coming out of its sombreros as well as a menu dedicated to German cuisine. Where the joint really comes into its own are the long happy hours and daily live entertainment. Combine those three together and we think it’s a definite ‘go-to’ for a fun night out in the city. Making it even better value for the relatively ‘teacher-free’ months of July and August, La Habana is offering 20 percent off on all lunches and 10 percent off on all dinners. Now there’s nothing really stopping you. Ole!
@ NY Steakhouse
Vegetarians avert your eyes — this next part is a beef-rich environment. Already established as a leading player in the competitive steak house game, New York Steak House takes pride in its beef. Whether it be a ribeye, sirloin or chateaubriand, NYSH definitely has the meat game wrapped up. To tempt you even more to its well appointed Nguyen Dinh Chieu residence, they’ve put together a Sunday package for four to six people costing VND2.25 million++ including 1.1 kg of US beef, six side dishes and a chocolate mousse. The same deal for six to eight people costs VND2.95 million ++ and includes 1.4kg of US beef, eight side dishes and the same yummy chocolate mousse. Just in time for the summer.
