Cynthia VuTran

On the Canal Streetcar line in Mid-City, Café Minh features a sophisticated fusion of Vietnamese, French and New Orleans fare prepared by Chef Cynthia VuTran. After escaping Vietnam with her family in 1979, she settled in New Orleans East, and began working in restaurants. Chef Cynthia furthered her lifelong love of cooking as a graduate of the Johnson and Wales culinary program, opening Café Minh in 2007. A menu that includes unique signature items and skillfully prepared interpretations of traditional Vietnamese dishes earned Café Minh recognition in 2016 by Zagat as a 5-star Top Rated Restaurant in New Orleans.
