Last night Lori and I had dinner at Alesia and it was delicious! Everything tasted great, and the prices are quite reasonable. One bottle of wine ($29) with two appetizers and two entrees = $56 before tip.
For apps, we had - Summer Rolls ($3.70) - fresh rolls in rice paper with shrimp, rice vermicelli, mint & choice of chicken or pork served with hoisin peanut sauce, and Egg Rolls ($3.50) - crispy fried rolls with shrimp, ground pork, wood ear mushrooms & glass noodles, served with house dipping sauce.
Lori had the Asian Style Beef Stew ($8.50) - tender beef & carrots with a flavorful broth over rice vermicelli, topped with fresh herbs & served with a french baguette.
I had the Traditional (lean beef & brisket) Pho ($8.50) - vietnamese rice noodle soup served with fresh herbs.
Like I said, we loved it and definitely recommend it. However, the beef pho at La V - Vietnamese Fusion has more meat and comes with a plate of crispy, fresh Culantro, basil, Jalapeño, and bean sprouts that you do not get at Alesia. Granted, La V's is costs a little more, I think $10 or $11.
