Ajna Bar (née Buddha Bar)
Some viewers didn’t jive with Season 3 winner Hung Huynh’s aggressive, competitive style, but his skill level is undeniable. He brings knowledge of Vietnamese and French cooking to this Asian-fusion restaurant, where the menu includes the same seared Peking duck breast with foie gras that Huynh served in his season’s finale—and that celebrity chef Todd English called “Michelin three-star worthy.”
Don’t Miss: Huynh’s seafood—especially scallops—is also above par. After all, he did win the gold medal for best fish at the Bocuse d’Or USA.
