Phan’s San Francisco restaurant is often hailed as the best Vietnamese eating spot in the US, offering refined and smart modern renditions of classic dishes from his native land. There’s a remarkably wonderful diversity to the food here: clams in a butter-lime sauce; spicy tuna tartare based on Hawaiian poke; fresh corn and mushroom saute; wok-charred eggplant with satay sauce. Fresh, surprising, and great fun to execute.
