Some days, the only meal that will suffice is pho, and for days like that Phoenix has Pho Thanh. This simple, clean dining room is full of large tables that often function as communal tables, so you may meet some new dining companions. No matter what style of pho you're in the mood for, it always comes chock full of plenty of greens and herbs and of course a heaping plate of add-ins, with the unusual inclusion of fresh mint. Although as the name implies, the pho is the main attraction here, you can also order other Vietnamese favorites like banh mi sandwiches, stir-frys and spring rolls.

The relaxing outdoor patio has a following of its own allowing patrons to catch their breath. With an addictive atmosphere and stellar music lineup, Vig's is a great place to come by with friends.
