Available as Private Dining menu options, Nhậu (‘neow’) celebrates the essence of the Vietnamese Nhậu drinking and eating culture – the equivalent of Japanese izakayas or Spanish tapas. Nhậu dishes are small plates of foods that inspire the gathering of friends for feasting and drinking…for any reason!
The comfort of food that connects us.
I am delighted to BRING YOU an original curated menu that re-imagines Vietnamese Nhậu dishes.
Your original menu of prepared meal will be available for pick up or delivered hand-packaged with reheating instructions.

Quick Pickled Foods and Simple Syrups
Our Quick Pickled Foods are handmade using produce from the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market, these quick pickled vegetables are great as a snack or to keep on hand to enhance you meal as a condiment or a side.
Our handcrafted, all-natural syrups are made with organic cane sugar & either fresh organic ginger, organic hibiscus, or organic lemongrass. You can use these as a cocktail mix by adding to vodka, gin, tequila, rum, or sparkling wine. Or, make it a “mocktail” using seltzer or soda water or add some flavor to an iced tea – whatever suits your fancy! Each 12 oz jar of syrup can be used to make approximately 10 to 15 cocktails or mocktails.
You can also get creative and use our syrups in your recipes. Inject into layers of cake before you add your icing. Use them when you poach fruits like pears, apples, or peaches or add a drizzle to your fruit salad. Create marinades when baking or grilling fish or meat.
