La Lot is named after the betel leaf used in the generally delicious, cigar-shaped beef la lot and elsewhere in Vietnamese cooking. While the restaurant is on the ground floor of the aspirationally slick Aspira condominums, it's got its heart in the right place—inspired by "our passion for food, love of our culture, and unity of family." La Lot's menu includes Vietnamese street-food-style dishes—the sisters used to make banh xeo (savory crepes) at a neighborhood stand—as well as more upscale and fusion stuff. Owner Cynthia Hoang (Pho To Chau, Cafe Pho) also offers a full bar with a “substantial” list of drinks. La Lot It looks all windowy and contemporary, in a pleasant way, and definitely worth a try.
