Could the H Street Corridor Get a Real Vietnamese Restaurant?

That's the question HstreetDC poses, and she thinks there's a good chance the answer could be yes.

Oh please oh please oh please.

I have been waiting for this for a long time... and I love all Vietnamese food, but please offer a great $8 bowl of Pho and I promise I will be in there twice a week.

it's kind of funny that she said before that she doesn't want to tease about things like this, because she knows that there can be problems before a lease is fully signed and all the details are set.

so, either she's changed her tune, or someone has signed a lease.

There are a zillion places to get pho in the DC area; but most of them actually aren't very good. I'm used to having to drive a long way to get decent pho here; if I could get it from a place in the neighborhood, that would be beyond the valley of the shadow of wonderful.

But even if they didn't have great pho, I'd still be excited; there's a heck of a lot more to Vietnamese cuisine than pho.

Please please please let me get what I want.

Is this from the good HStreet twitterer or the trifling HStreet tiwtterer?

My mouth is already watering with the thought of... decent pho that is reasonably priced! Driving or metroing is awful with a hangover. But with the cure just walking distance, I am foaming STOKED!

I do so hope this happens - I could eat Vietnamese food all day long. I'd play for their stickball team.
