This week, we finish our two-part run on Vietnamese restaurants in the neighborhood by sitting down with Falansai’s Henry Trieu, one of Bushwick’s most thoughtful business owners, to better understand: As the neighborhood and its culinary scene change in unpredictable ways, what’s top of mind for a restaurateur here?


We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to Henry and the team at Falansai for taking us behind the scenes of the restaurant, and for sharing such a candid perspective on the future of business in Bushwick. To learn more, follow Falansai on Instagram (, check out their website (, or visit them for yourself at 112 Harrison Pl.
