New upscale Vietnamese on Van Ness?

bernalgirl Jul 19, 2007 11:51 AM

Driving up Van Ness the other day, I noticed what looks like a new, possibly Vietnamese place, where Havana used to be.

Seems unlikely that this is news to this board, but no amount of clever searching found a thread, so perhaps someone knows the deal?

    Isn't this place closed? I could be wrong but we drove by here on the way to Matterhorn and I saw a "For Lease" sign.

      Now that I have the name I noticed that it came up on an Open Table search on Saturday, so probably not closed.

        That's odd...I did a search on Yelp and it also said closed. Very interesting...

          According to this week's tablehopper, it is closed:

        I guess I don't get down Van Ness very often, it's been there longer than I realized. Thanks for the links, I'd be interested in hearing anything else. It has a bar, which is a prerequisite for dinners with my grandmother. Would this be an okay, reasonably accessible place for four generations (seniors to children) to converge or is it more of a drinking place?

          By accessible I mean physically, not the food.

          Do you think the pun in the name is intentional? (say out loud, pronouncing the first word "hu-ey")
