Isabelle Nguyen is the chef/owner of Viet Comfort. Born in Vietnam and raised in Texas, she brings to NYC the best of both worlds. With homestyle and authentic Vietnamese flavors, the menu at Viet Comfort focuses on a series of comfort food that she grew up eating.
Isabelle honed her skills at Michelin guide restaurants such as Selamat Pagi in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Forager's Table in Chelsea. After stepping out on her own, she launched a dinner pop-up called The Art of Pho in 2015 and served over 150 bowls of pho from June to December.
She currently resides in Bed Stuy and hopes to bring the first Vietnamese restaurant to her neighborhood.
