For years, the charming Bobby Chinn has been Hanoi’s chef-about-town, regaling diners at his eponymous restaurant with tales from his global adventures. And when the lease expired on the city-center space that made him famous, Chinn decided to make it even more personal: the new Restaurant Bobby Chinn is in his West Lake home. The ground floor houses a bar and intimate seating areas separated by velvet and silk drapes, while the hushed, romantic upstairs dining room features candlelit tables, wood floors and white walls. The digs might be different, but the menu stays true to Chinn’s fusion flair, with starters like Moroccan beet salad with hazelnut-crusted goat’s cheese and seared scallops with braised edamame. Signature dishes—salmon with wasabi-mashed potatoes and ginger demi-glace; molten chocolate cake— are as memorable as always.
