A new place for pho noodle soups and other Vietnamese food could come to Columbia Heights within days, its owner told Borderstan yesterday.
Vietnamese Chelsea Restaurant at 1413 Park Road NW is in the process of securing all the paperwork it needs from the D.C. government to open this week, owner Andrew Nguyen said. The eatery is in the space formerly occupied by Change Inc., a nonprofit organization that left in 2014.
“I believe people will love it,” he said. “We will do very good food.”
In addition to pho, the eatery will have vermicelli and rice dishes with pork, beef, chicken, shrimp and vegatables, according to a menu shown to Borderstan. All entrees are between $12 and $14.
The restaurant won’t have alcohol for sale when it opens, however. Nguyen said he is still working to get a liquor license.
