Those skinny eggplants are indeed fabulous!
Do you like eggplant? How about scallops? How about gently roasted Japanese eggplant, so sweet that you eat it with the skin. It’s the base for three enormous scallops. Someone in the kitchen at Cafe Minh knows how to brown the scallops perfectly to bring up the flavor. A heavenly dish, not cheap at about $12 but worth every penny.
Summer rolls with peanut sauce. The perfect beginning.
About $45 with tip for two. Not a cheap lunch, but a relaxing moment in the very modern interior.
Accessible by streetcar just one block off Canal and Claiborne.
