NY Mag says:

Dung Trinh didn’t jump on the bánh mì bandwagon. He started working on his two-pronged Vietnamese restaurant in 2007, as the bánh mì universe exploded around him. In May 2009, he unveiled Bánh Mì 172, a narrow alcove dispensing classic versions of the suddenly ubiquitous sandwich, from meatball to BBQ pork. (He and his partners also launched An Nhau, an adjacent dining room, bar, and garden.) Trinh, a Vietnamese native who grew up in Bay Ridge, worked front of the house at Indochine and La Esquina before going to cooking school. He focuses on family recipes, including those of an aunt who owns Houston, Texas’s Alpha Bakery, renowned for both its bánh mì and the baguettes they’re served on.
