After visiting Hanoi, I was in a quest to find northern style pho in nyc. While this was not exactly like what I had tasted in Hanoi, it was very good! The broth, though not clear, was very savory and had amazing flavor. The beef was delicious and the only fault I could find was they did not provide Thai chili peppers until we asked. While price was quite expensive, I think this is the closest you’ll find in Nyc until Vietnamese food becomes more mainstream in the city.
