House Banh Mi at Elizabeth Street Café
No, this isn’t a $1.50 banh mi but rather a sandwich event to be celebrated, and it will cost you a bit more. Chef Larry McGuire has elevated Vietnamese food to his upscale usual at this South First Street locale. Evidence: the house specialty banh mi, with chicken liver mousse, pork pâté and roasted pork on an elegant fresh baguette with homemade mayo, cucumber, daikon, carrot, sambal, cilantro and jalapeño.
Insider Tip: Call it in and get it to go for a quick, satisfying lunch without any wait.
