    Four Sisters - Vietnamese

    SOLD OUT - to be put on waitlist email dccalsupperclub@gmail.com


    Enjoy “pho” on a cold winter’s night!  Lots of other tasty treats on menu – bun, hot pot, lettuce wraps, grilled meats, fabulous seafood.  Four Sisters, formerly in Eden Center, is now in Mosaic District’s Merrifield Center with lots of shops and Angelika Film Center.  Catch a movie before or after dinner. If you need or can offer a ride, please contact the organizer, Karen, who will play carpool matchmaker!

    “Nearly two decades on, Four Sisters remains not merely the area’s best introduction to the genre but — amid a flood of competition — the best Vietnamese restaurant, period…To come across cooking this colorful, this beautifully presented, this delicious — at prices that harken back a decade or more — is astonishing.”

        –Todd Kilman, Washingtonian Magazine
