Scoop on SIMPLY IT Vietnamese?

Anyone been to Simply It, a newish Vietnamese Spot in Lincoln Park?

FAB, AUTHENTIC ASIAN OF ANY TYPE

Thanks for the travel tip. 30 minutes is too far for this client. Le Colonial is out as they have a location in San Francisco. Aruns is also too far for that time of evening. Looks like its Vong or Shanghai Terrace. Any preferences?

I will try TAC another evening or for lunch.

thanks for the great tips. TAC looks like just the place...thanks for the photos. I have made a reservation there. Will let you know how it works out. And I'll take Erik M's translation with me.
Aruns looks great too, but a little too fussy and far for this client.
Thanks again.

I will be in Chicago on business next week. A client (from San Francisco!) has requested serious Asian of any sort, except sushi. Ideally I would like a place that will take reservations as we're dining on a Friday evening. Price is not important. Clean is, so the sort of greasy hole in the wall that I love is not an option. Looking for something more real than Le Colonial and less fusion/french than Le Lan. 15 minute taxi ride from downtown max. Extra points for beer and or wine.

Thai seems to be my best option at the moment...Siam Rice or Spoon on Western perhaps?

Thanks!
