Saigon Grill (Upper East Side)


Saigon Grill Upper East Side


“You won’t have to shove bamboo shoots under my fingernails to make me come back here!,” exclaims one happy patron on his way out. Be dog-gone sure to try the grilled sirloin, which looks as if it dropped out of a donkey’s ass but tastes like it was delivered to earth by the hand of Buddha himself. Charlie used to own the night — now he runs the best Vietnamese restaurant on the Upper East Side. [MF, KF]
