Ever since the news broke that a new Vietnamese restaurant, Pho 12, was coming to Brookland a lot of neighbors have been eagerly awaiting their first taste. The restaurant opened on October 20th and is located at 3740 12th Street NE (where B’Cafe used to be). We decided to check it out and took the photos below.
The restaurant is small but cute with 7 tables. Besides (obviously) Pho, the restaurant also serves appetizers, rice and noodle dishes and desserts, including beignets. We tried the spring rolls, chicken skewers (so so so good), a Pho bowl, and pork with vermicelli noodles. I don’t know much about Vietnamese food but we found everything to be very tasty, flavorful and fresh. The service was also very nice and helpful. I tried my first Vietnamese iced coffee and loved it, good and strong. Over all we are super-delighted to have this new addition to the neighborhood and will definitely be back soon.
The restaurant’s hours are Monday to Saturday, 10:30 AM – 8:30 PM and you can check out the menu here. If you don’t have flash, you can check out the photos here.
We were happy to see that we will be getting a new Vietnamese restaurant soon! The new restaurant, Pho 12, will be 3740 12th Street NE, in the location where the now closed B’Cafe used to be. We spoke with a worker at the location who said that the restaurant will be open in about a month or so. We will keep an eye out and let you know when we see any signs of an opening.
Permits on the windows also indicate that the 9 unit former hotel on the second and third floor above are being refurbished. It would be great to have hotel in the neighborhood. We will let you know when we know for sure whether it will re-open as hotel or as something else. Also, from a sign on the other storefront, a beauty shop/nail salon called Perfect Nails will open this month.
