Madame Vo BBQ

Madame Vo BBQ

Cuisine: Vietnamese, Barbecue


Madame Vo BBQ is a funky spot serving up top notch Vietnamese style barbecue. While most appetizers are prepared in the kitchen, grilled meats are grilled tableside. Look for dishes like Grilled Quail with tamarind-honey glaze, Spring Rolls with Short Rib and Bone Marrow with a truffle-hoisin sauce, and BBQ Oyster with charred uni mayo. Meat dishes include Bo Lui, a lemon grass-marinated short rib roll with white onion and scallion oil (very delicious); Vietnamese Steak with bone-marrow butter and roasted garlic; and Nem Nuong, roast Berkshire pork meatballs with scallion oil and crushed peanuts. There is a $59 per person tasting menu if you'd like a try a bit of everything. >>

UPDATE: Madame Vo adds brunch to its line-up. Chef Jimmy Ly’s playful take on Vietnamese flavors is showing up in dishes like Vietnamese Chicken & Waffles with waffles made from pandan and coconut milk; Bon Ne Lemongrass Steak & Eggs with marinated ribeye and fried eggs served in a skillet; and Chan Chua Shrimp Bahn Mi sandwich with tamarind-glazed shrimp, pineapple, basil, rau ram (a type of coriander) and Vietnamese mayo.

The Madame Vo BBQ team is thrilled to introduce our AN NHAU HAPPY HOUR menu. For newcomers, nhậu simply translates to ''eating and drinking, just for fun'' similar to the open-air bars of Vietnam. fax
