For years, BT has been one of my all-time favorite chefs… and her food is always, that’s always, spot on delicious… with the most beautiful presentation ever. Last week I went to Restaurant BT with some friends for lunch and we all agreed, we’ve got to go back more often.
Her renowned pumpkin soup is simply incredible… especially on a cool day like today. The day we went, we literally did a tasting menu – each ordering a couple items to share. And share we did. I would definitely run back for the Pork Banh Mi Baguette – the fresh shrimp rolls, the spring rolls, the Ed Gunning lobster baguette is one of the best I’ve ever had – and the Peking Duck burrito was a great choice as well.
Zagat writes: “Spunky” chef-owner BT Nguyen is “a master,” say fans of the “superb,” “high-style” French Vietnamese dishes that look like “works of art” at this Tampa retreat; “zen like” décor and attentive service and a “relaxing” vibe…
All of us agreed with the Zagat review, and want to go back soon – yet, this time for dinner. And be assured, I will – anyone want to join me?
