The wait is almost over for the most anticipated opening in the Berry Hill neighborhood this year, as fast-casual Vietnamese restaurant Vui's Kitchen plans to open its doors next week on Thursday, May 26.
Located in the former home of Curious Heart Emporium, the 50-seat eatery is owned and operated by Juice Bar co-owner Vui Hunt, along with her husband John and with backing from local restaurant group Fresh Hospitality. Hunt is taking the approach she used with Juice Bar, keeping it simple and using fresh whole food ingredients, and applying it to traditional Vietnamese dishes. And Eater has the first look at the full opening menu (below).
The menu is concise, offering up a greatest hits list of Vietnamese favorites including bone broth, pho, lotus root salad and a banh mi sandwich. Prices for small and main plates ring in at a wallet-friendly $3.95 to $9.95. Dessert items range from Vietnamese ice coffee to an avocado shake or fresh coconut served simply with a spoon. Beverage options include juices, sodas, bottled water and a small selection of beer and wine.
Hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
