There are dozens of Vietnamese restaurants in our city, including those that cater to gourmet-minded American palates. This year, we have to cite COM VIETNAMESE GRILL. This small cafes menu is a completely unique riff on classic street food, like apple and papaya salad but here garnished with roasted duck, if you choose. You can top vermicelli with a selection of ground meats (including lamb) rolled into la lot leaves, which resemble grape leaves and are said to be good for hiccups and nausea. There are amazingly spiced mussels scattered with peanuts, and our favorite special, roasted rabbit.
