With a handsome lounge, a shady porch, and a pan-Asian menu that includes Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai standards, as well as sushi and even some gently handled fusion fare, the Pearl is a gem for casual dining. Small but thoughtful wine list.
The fragrance and flavor of Tay Do's authentic Vietnamese cuisine full of ginger, lime, cilantro, and mint is enough to transport diners from the bare-bones dining room into a full-blown floral fantasy. Favorites include ephemeral Vietnamese crepes, strong French coffee with condensed milk, and some of the best tofu dishes in town. Small beer list try the Tsing Tao.
