Nominated for: BEST Vietnamese
Whether it's the elegance of your plate presentation, the quality of the finest ingredients or the highest level of service, the Dang family takes great pride on their reputation for excellence. Such excellence doesn't come easily, but they have successfully parlayed their cherished family recipes and dedication to fine cuisine into three of Orange County's most popular restaurants: Brodard Chateau, Brodard Nem Nuong and Bamboo Bistro.
The family's newest addition, Brodard Chateau opened in July 2006, is strictly a family affair, run by the family matriarch, Diane Dang, known by her friends and frequent guests as Madame Brodard, referring to the namesake of her famous restaurants. Her lovely daughters, Chau Dang and Lisa Vo lend their culinary creativity while maintaining a sense of tradition and integrity of ingredients with specialty dishes from three regions of Vietnam: Ha Noi, Hue and Saigon.
