No matter how you pronounce it, pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup, will warm you through the winter. Soon, it will be a permanent fixture downtown.
Suwana Cry of Thai Orchid is teaming up with Brad Reichardt of Bobo Gallery to create Bobo Pho at 22 Lexington Ave. “Pho is good winter food,” Cry says. “We'll have also the chicken and rice, kind of like street food in Asia.”
Reichardt maintains the subleases on the restaurant space in Bobo, formerly occupied by Green Light Café. But Cry says she plans to use the seating throughout Bobo for her customers. She hopes to have more space than Green Light had.
The eatery will focus on dishes that are fast and easy to prepare. Cry says the opening is still more than a month away.
In the meantime, the food truck Pho Ya Belly serves the Vietnamese noodle soup several nights a week at The Lot on Coxe Avenue.
