At Crustacean in Beverly Hills, we enjoyed a unique brunch featuring a special Pop-lini cocktail, dim sum, and inventive dishes like Ube Soufflé pancakes, duck potstickers, and tuna cigars. Highlights included Langoustine Benedict, Ramen Cacio E Pepe, and for dessert, beignets with Vietnamese coffee crème anglaise and vegan coconut sorbet.
Chef Tony Nguyen of Crustacean Beverly Hills emphasizes the importance of being surrounded by family and friends during Thanksgiving. He suggests having a backup plan and ensuring there’s gravy or sauce available in case the turkey turns out drier than expected.
Crustacean: A southern California institution. The family-run, Vietnamese fusion restaurant has been around since 1991, with chef Helene An, the matriarch of the business, opening the Beverly Hills location in 1995. The spot even has its own secret entrance for celebrities. Lakzani and her husband seem to be regulars. Get the whimsical tuna cigars like they did, and order her cocktail “Daughter of the Dragon” for a bit of spice from the Thai chili-infused vodka. 468 N. Bedford Drive, Beverly Hills
Chef Tony Nguyen advises making stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce ahead of time to focus on roasting the turkey to perfection on the meal day.

Crustacean is one of those old, legacy restaurants that would be easy to write off if the food weren’t so good. Their website has photos of celebrities like Viola Davis and Margot Robbie, the dining room feels like a Las Vegas nightclub, and half of the menu is trademarked. However, they offer some killer turmeric glass noodles, very good coconut cake, and thick garlic noodles coated in “Chef An’s secret sauce.” Much like Cher’s performance in Moonstruck, these are just as wonderful as everyone says.
Modern Vietnamese fare by chef Helene An is what it is all about at Crustacean. Nearly every smart table will start with the smoky tuna tartare cigars and the crispy crab bites. Don’t sleep on the famous garlic noodles or the garlic-roasted Dungeness crab served in or out of its shell — go big and get both. The best part is seeing An herself working the dining room and making friends with everyone.
