I recently interviewed part of the team behind Pho Bar and Grill, which hopes to open in early fall at 1360 H Street (formerly the home of Sweets and Treats). Here's the basic rundown:
Two dining floors with a full bar on the second floor. They'll serve pho and banh mi (as previously reported by @HStreetDC the prices will start at $9 and $6 respectively), as well as traditional items from the Vietnamese grill (lots of rice and noodle dishes). They will also offer spring rolls, and probably some tasty spring salads. Drinks? But of course! At least one beer on tap, and also some nice bottles from which to choose. One is guaranteed to be the Tiger (Singapore). You'll also be able to order up some Vietnamese coffee, or bubble tea. The owners plan to offer delivery and carryout options. I can also say that plans for a roof deck are in the works. The three partners are excited about H Street's future, and proud to offer up some healthy dining options at affordable prices. Anticipated operating hours: 11am-11pm Sunday-Thursday with later hours on weekends.
