Manhattan, NY 10003


It opened its doors more than 25 years ago, and Indochine still holds onto the elements that made it famous, including a crowd of yuppies mixed with the fashion world and on-the-rise celebrities. Utilizing exotic-meets-tropical design elements such as Japanese box lights, palm trees painted onto the walls and a sleek tiled floor worked in the late ’80s for this French-Vietnamese fusion restaurant, so why change now? Some consider Indochine to be past its prime, but revelers still frequent this pioneer for the consistent spring rolls, the reliable sole steamed in a banana leaf and the glazed duck breast.
