One of the newest spots to hit the DC food scene, 1914 by Kolben is quickly making a name for itself with its authentic menu, welcoming ambiance, and quality service. Vietnamese natives, frequent visitors, and foodies alike are almost unanimously in recommending this recent addition to the city. 

“This is a must-visit if you are in the mood for upscale Vietnamese food and great ambiance to match! “ writes one reviewer. “Certainly recommended and will definitely be back here.” adds another. They’ve even gathered some repeat customers already, with one reviewer exclaims, “This is the new era of Asian upscale casual dining. Unabashedly authentic in feel, no corners are cut in providing the whimsical and calming immersive experience.”

Glowing reviews aside, the most important aspect of any restaurant is its food. Thankfully, 1914 doesn’t disappoint in that regard either. Their Bun Cha Ha Thanh (grilled pork noodles), Xoi Ga Xe (sticky rice with shredded chicken, pate, and onion), and Cha Gio Re (signature waffle wrap egg rolls) stand out as early fan favorites but, if you have a taste for Asian flavors, it’s likely any item on their menu will hit the spot.
