Need to Know … from Dan Clapson of Dan’s Goodside: “I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: making ‘refined’ Vietnamese cuisine is a hard sell. When pho is, well, plentiful at a minimal cost, you have to do something really amazing with those robust Asian flavours to make diners pay attention. Ly’s menu at Raw Bar sees him tapping into his Vietnamese roots and presenting dishes that are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat. It also doesn’t hurt that Raw Bar’s general manager, Christina Mah, shakes and stirs some of the best cocktails in the city. Killer combination.”
