"Le V, boasts a wall of wines that bisects
its bistro-Moderne dining room."

"People's expectations are different
now," says Cecilia Le, a former financial
analyst who owns 6-month-old Le V
Cuisine. Her customers tend to be
business professionals who enjoy
wines with her menu of Vietnamese and
fusion dishes and shareable small
plates such as small spring lamb chops
arranged on blue cheese-spiked potato
"fondue" or salmon carpaccio sprinkled
with crispy capers and chives. They're
not averse to culinary experimentation,
Le says.

touch of red silk and an impressive
Lucite wall of wines set the tone for a
