Joining a recent uptick in restaurants heading to the Queen Village area, a new eatery is coming to 7th and South streets. Banh Mi and Bottles will open at 712-714 South in early May, according to Foobooz.
The new addition will serve Vietnamese street food, plus an eye-popping, 200-plus bottles of craft beer. It will open for lunch and dinner serving small plates like classic banh mi sandwiches, pho and salad rolls plus a full bar with organic cocktails.
Banh Mi and Bottles (is it too early to just call it B&B?) will be opened by Tuan Phung, whose father is head chef of Pho Ha in South Philly.
Design renderings for the large restaurant space show a bright, funky interior, perfect for setting up shop along the always-lively South Street. Banh Mi and Bottles will join Hungry Pigeon, Southwark, Whetstone and Kanella South in the neighborhood's recent culinary boom.
