Banh-mi lovers rejoice! Les Givral’s Kahve's Washington Avenue outpost is a neighborhood favorite for its famous French-Vietnamese fare.
Set on the bottom floor of a multi-level mixed-use development—between Shepherd Drive and Patterson Street—the spot is funky and hard to overlook, at least after the sun goes down. At night, floor-to-ceiling windows captivate passers-by with artist Rogelio Rendon’s over-the-top wooden art installation that fills the restaurant’s interior.
Near the front door, a futuristic-looking bar entices guests for libations, while tech-savvy computer-screen menus hang near the counter-service station, tempting revelers onward for wallet-friendly vermicelli bowls, mouth-watering banh-mi sandwiches and spring rolls.
Stop by Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, as well as late-night grub Friday and Saturday nights, when Les Givral’s keeps its doors open until 3 AM. Hungry for more? Visit Les Givral's Kahve's Midtown location on Milam.
