Our member Jody, would like to get together at this beautiful and unique place, Le Colonial. I have been to the lounge area and enjoyed so much the coconut cocktail, it was one of the best cocktail I have ever had. As for the food, the restaurant owns a good reputation.
Below are the introductions from the restaurant and the link to the restaurant online menus:
Exquisite French Vietnamese Cuisine~
Le Colonial, just minutes away from popular Union Square in San Francisco’s downtown district, evokes the ambiance of French colonial Vietnam in a lush, romantic setting. The inner courtyard, which once housed legendary Trader Vic’s, has been transformed into an oasis featuring mosaic-like tile flooring, a vaulted, pressed-tin ceiling, tropical plants and plush rattan furniture, all accented by the glow of candlelight. Diners enjoy a menu designed to showcase authentic Vietnamese dishes with a touch of French influence. Le Colonial has delighted in welcoming visitors for over ten years.
The Vietnamese cuisine at Le Colonial features the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible, culled from the bounty of produce and ecologically farmed meat, game and poultry found at farms throughout the Bay area. Among the specialty dishes prepared by our Executive Chef are Goi Du Du Tom (Shredded green papaya with poached prawns, carrots, mint, toasted peanuts and crispy shallots tossed in chili garlic and lime vinaigrette) and Cha Gio (crispy spring rolls with shrimp, pork and woodear mushrooms, served with table salad and nuoc cham dipping sauce). Entrée selections include Ca Nuong (Pan seared Sturgeon marinated in lemongrass, chilies and curry served over a rice noodle salad with lettuce cups and a tangy cucumber dipping sauce) and Bo Luc Lac (cubes of beef tenderloin wok tossed in garlic and soy sauce, served with organic watercress, tomatoes and crispy potatoes). An award-winning wine and cordial list compliments the menu.
