Ba Bar

Saumaya Sharma

You can get yourself fed—with the one of the city’s best bowls of pho, no less—from the morning till the wee hours at this stylish Vietnamese mini-chain, with locations in Capitol Hill, South Lake Union, and U Village. That pho is lovingly, expensively crafted (the oxtail broth takes a full 24 hours to prepare), as are the rest of the noodle soups, protein laden vermicelli bowls, and street-food-inspired small plates, like fried frog’s legs and grilled lemongrass beef skewers. (And that’s if you can get past the croissants, macarons, and other sweets in the stunning pastry case.) The cocktail list is alive with fresh juices and unusual bitters, which you can taste for yourself at their early evening and late-night happy hours. JENN CAMPBELL
