MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Whether you’re on date night or doodling with the kids, Cassia fits the bill. This neighborhood stunner nails that effortless easygoing restaurant vibe, albeit with a ramped-up style that marries winsome brasserie with chic urban loft. Southeast Asian flavors mingle on the menu, which delivers enough variety to keep you coming back. From clay oven-baked breads and house-made charcuterie to an extensive raw bar, the kitchen impresses with bold offerings. Popular Vietnamese-inspired plates feature pork with vermicelli noodles alongside colonial mash-ups like chopped escargot with lemongrass butter. Those "sunbathing" prawns, charred and slathered with a pungent garlic and chili sauce, are a delight when spiked with the house hot sauce.
