The Inspiring Journey of Chef Jimmy Ly and Yen Vo

It all began when Chef Jimmy met Yen, who had moved from Houston to New York City to pursue a career in fashion. Yen, who grew up enjoying traditional southern Vietnamese food, was in search of the best Vietnamese cuisine in the city. Jimmy knew the answer lay in his parents' home-cooked meals. This passion for authentic flavors and family recipes led to the opening of Madame Vo in 2017 and later, Monsieur Vo in 2022.

With their innovative dishes and dedication to quality, Madame Vo and Monsieur Vo have attracted New Yorkers and visitors alike, eager to savor the bold flavors of southern Vietnamese cooking. The restaurants' offerings are not only a reflection of traditional recipes but also a celebration of Vietnamese culture and the rich diversity of its cuisine.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Jimmy and Yen continued to serve their community by staying open at Madame Vo, feeding New Yorkers during lockdown, and delivering hundreds of free meals to local hospitals and healthcare heroes. Their resilience and commitment to their craft have only further endeared them to their customers.
