Chef

Matthew Tran

Matthew’s parents, Nu and Tony Tran, arrived in the United States from Vietnam at the conclusion of the Vietnam War and the fall of Saigon. After exodus from their homeland, they were stranded at sea for days and finally rescued by an American Navy ship. In the decades following, Nu and Tony were able to attend high school, graduate college, purchase a home and car, and start a family.

Matthew was inspired by his family’s struggle and heritage to create Red Lantern, along with his parents, as a way to honor the Vietnamese spirit and traditions that have influenced his life. The restaurant serves traditional and authentic Vietnamese street foods, some of which Matthew grew up eating. Through a limited rotating specials menu, he also plans to bring The Switch community some fun, lesser-known foods from Vietnam as well as fusion dishes that meld eastern and western cuisine.
