MoPho’s menu, which takes a gourmet approach to traditional Vietnamese dishes, was an immediate hit in its Mid-City neighborhood, and earlier this month the restaurant was nominated as one of Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurants. Chef Michael Gulotta (former chef de cuisine at Restaurant August) has constructed a restaurant that’s both a casual drop-in spot and a place for a special meal. Make your own pho (pick a broth and add your own ingredients) or go for favorites like crispy lemon grass chicken wings or fried shrimp spring rolls.  (If they’ve roasted a whole pig on the patio, as they often do, don’t miss it.) Sandwiches (hot sausage, duck, oysters, and quite a few more) meld hearty po-boy flavors to lighter banh mi tastes. Cocktails are solid, too; the Tamarind Sour melds rye whiskey to tamarind, while the Dragon Lady starts with housemade dragonfruit tequila. Tip: Watch where you park; the adjoining lot can and does tow with ferocious frequency
