How can a restaurant be "new" when it has been wowing diners for more than 20 years? When it moves around the corner, adds new items to its singular menu and still welcomes a full restaurant night after night. Recreating the seductive atmosphere and vivid flavors of 1920's French Colonial Southeast Asia, Le Colonial presents an updated menu by Executive Chef/Partner Quoc Luong and stunning interiors evoking the romance of French Indochina. The four distinct spaces include a softly lit dining room; an all-season porch overlooking Oak Street; a sexy bar and lounge; and a private and special chef's tasting room for 10. Chef Luong preserves the heirloom recipes of his homeland and collaborated with Culinary Director Nicole Routhier (considered the nation's leading expert in Vietnamese cookery) to add a range of new, vibrant menu additions like duck noodle soup, seafood ceviche, whole red snapper filleted tableside and pineapple flambeé.
- New and Popular Restaurants: "The dozens of black and white photographs punctuating the space were procured from the family album of the governor of 1920's Indochina."
- Romantic Dining: "Don't miss sweet and satisfying Vietnamese coffee made with Café du Monde chicory blend, filter-dripped over sweetened condensed milk."
