Rice Paper Is Stylish But Needs Soul, in This Week's Cafe Review
Rice Paper, the Vietnamese restaurant on Seventh Street that opened this summer, is unquestionably stylish, but does its cuisine make the cut? Here's a snippet from my review:
"And if you're in this midtown neighborhood and willing to sacrifice the more authentic and wallet-friendly dishes found in fluorescent-lit, no-frills Phoenix Vietnamese favorites like Pho Than and Da Vang, then spending a few hours steeped in Rice Paper's chic scene, nibbling on semi-satisfying fare alongside a cold Sing Ha or glass of cucumber-infused water, shouldn't be a problem. Besides, you'll be joining other like-minded diners who pack the place on a regular basis."
