Hanoi House is getting some welcome buzz. This East Village spot is already drawing crowds for its laid back vibe, friendly service and inventive Vietnamese cuisine. Look for things like crispy spring rolls with sausage, mint and Thai basil; Uni "bahn mi" with sea urchin, pate and pickled vegetables; Hanoi-style beef pho with filet mignon, brisket and rice noodles; clam & congee with peanuts, scallions and crispy garlic; and root vegetable curry with cashews and lemongrass. Family-style feasts are also offered.
