SAIGONESE Vietnamese Restaurant opens in Hartsdale

SAIGONESE Vietnamese Restaurant opens in Hartsdale

Yes, there is now a Vietnamese Restaurant named Saigonese at 158 S.Central Avenue in Hartsdale, NY. I have been watching as they reconstructed the “Red Barn”, which was a short lived Pizza restaurant, into Saigonese.

It is the only Vietnamese restaurant in Westchester County that I know of. If you know one, let me know.

They did a really good job of renovating the interior which, despite looking like a barn from outside, is open and airy.
The staff (we had Andy),  is friendly and helpful and the food does reflect the lightness of the food.  For those of you who are “pho” (pronounced “fuh) fans, this is the place to go. I had the chicken one that was more than enough to take home for next day lunch.  We shared the “spring rolls” which is combo of pork, chicken and shrimp, vermecelli, onion wrapped in rice paper and fried..served with interesting house special fish sauce (it does not taste “fishy!”). My husband had their grilled pork which is on a skewer with lemongrass and thin rice noodles.
Although a limited menu, nothing is over $13 and on average $8.50 per item.

Two great reviews of the restaurant and pictures of inside can be found on the website Westchester Foodies, and on the
Westchester Magazine site.

Their biggest problem is going to be the lack of parking. Its a
very tight parking lot with only about 12 spaces that I counted. Perhaps Allstate next door will let them use their parking after hours.! And, they do have a take out menu.

Many years ago I worked for Population Council in NYC which did family planning studies in developing countries, which included Vietnam.  One of my Ph.D. bosses found a small Vietnamese restaurant near U.N. he ate at almost every day.
I  think he would have enjoyed this one!
