Green Leaf, Seattle, Washington
Seattle , Washington
Concierge.com's insider take:
Stylish bamboo accents, artsy ceramic ware, and the lack of fluorescent lighting put Green Leaf in a class above most Vietnamese joints in the International District. So does the cookingthe food here is as delicious as it is authentic. Pho glistens with rafts of fresh herbs and liberal layers of lemongrass; other standouts include omeletlike scallion pancakes with shrimp and the house-made spring rolls. Best of all, you won't have to pay extra for the ambience—prices are on par with the neighborhood's simpler takeaway spots.
Open daily 11 am to 10 pm.
