Phuc Yea

Top choice vietnamese in Little Haiti & the Upper East Side

Phuc Yea started as a pop up and went wildly popular with its delicious Cajun-Vietnamese cooking. The name got about as much attention – but 'phuc', says Urban Dictionary, stands for 'blessing and prosperity.' Get yourself some lobster summer rolls, the excellent fish curry, octopus with lime and sweet chili, spicy chicken wings and other great sharing plates.

The venue is industrial with graffiti, soft lighting and loud hip-hop (sometimes too loud). The raw bar in front doles out sushi, fresh oysters and creative cocktails (happy hour from 5pm to 7pm). There's also outdoor dining in a paper-lantern-filled garden.
