They say the third time’s the charm, and so it is for the third branch of this top-notch local temple to neo-Vietnamese cuisine. The location is superb: the vast, stylishly industrial space, filled with varnished cypress tables, sits at the back of the restored Ferry Building (window-side diners can watch ships going by). And chef Charles Phan’s menu more than lives up to the view; his fresh, clean flavors infuse dishes ranging from a perfect (if familiar) green papaya salad with chopped peanuts and herbs to creative concoctions like a chicken clay pot with caramel sauce, chiles, and fresh ginger.

Insider Tip:

The unisex bathroom has its pluses (no more lines snaking out of the ladies’ room while the mens’ goes unused) and its minuses (a hovering attendant). Those who prefer privacy can use the public facilities serving the Ferry Building Marketplace.
