Hidden in a short elevator ride above Buckhead Village is a famed Vietnamese restaurant humming with well- dressed diners and a cozy French bistro soundtrack. Le Colonial whisks you away to a forgotten era in a beautifully decorated dining room. The food is a creative combination of Asian flavors where every ingredient is thoughtful and perfectly balanced. You definitely forget your are in a bustling city when you are dining here surrounded by moody colors, palms, and beautiful artwork.
Celebrated restaurateurs Rick Wahlstedt and Joe King nailed the vibe with sustainable dishes expertly curated by Partner Nicole Routhier, Regional Corporate Chef Hassan Obaye and Executive Chef Richard Lee.
With a passion for serving bright, shareable cuisine that showcases classic Vietnamese flavors with a Southern twist, the Le Colonial culinary team sources organic and local ingredients, including wild-caught seafood and hormone-free protein, as available. The team is also very selective about their partnerships with local producers to ensure that their passion for sustainability is equally matched. The current menu includes house favorites that are equal parts flavor and freshness, such as Ca Chien Saigon, a whole crispy red snapper with peppers, scallions and chili garlic fish sauce, and Che Chuoi Organic Tapiaco, warm coconut tapioca with caramelized banana, sesame seed and Vanilla Anglaise. Guests also love Le Colonial’s take on crispy brussel sprouts which are topped with caramelized fish sauce, lemon and toasted peanuts for an added crunch.
In addition, guests can savor inventive craft cocktails that incorporate complex yet balanced flavors including, Khoi Va Va, made with Woodford Reserve Rye, fernet branca, giffard orgeat, smoked simple syrup and lemon juice, and Que Khau Chua featuring whiskey sour, 1792 Small Batch Bourbon, Whistle Pig Maple Syrup, cinnamon syrup, lemon juice and egg whites.
