Raleigh - Fortune Palace

Andrea Weigl (N&O) reported in her blog that Fortune Palace closed in May. She mentions the two couples who owned it are considering opening a smaller restaurant. I hope so!

    The new restaurant in this location is open."Pho & Japanese Steakhouse" seems to be the name.

        Just what the area DOES NOT need: another asian fusion restaurant that offers mediocre versions of various unique asian cuisines. Hope I'm wrong. Hard to find old style cantonese anymore either.

            I hope their banh mi are good! It would be great to have that option back in that shopping center.

            So sorry - I had driven by and seen the lights on & the open sign turned on a few times in the last week. Next time I'm by and they look open I'll park and try the door. (Note to self, stop forgetting about what "assume" means!)

          I drove by there the other day. The Fortune Palace location has a sign indicating a Japanese Steakhouse is coming soon. The grocery/food court part of the center has signs of reopening.

          Hopefully it will all be good!
