Vietnamese Restaurant Slated for North Adams

Staff Reports

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A Vietnamese restaurant will open in the former Branning's on Curran Highway.

John and Nancy Nguyen of North Adams will open the Saigon-Vietnamese restuarant, Pho, at 1280 Curran Highway at Valley Park Lanes. Pho refers to the restaurant's specialty, a Vietnamese beef noodle dish.

The Nguyens appeared before the Planning Board on Monday night, Jan. 11, and were represented by James Sisto. Sisto told the board the hours will be 11 to 11 daily and the workforce will consist of seven to 10 part- and full-time employees, mostly family members.

New paint and carpet and appropriate decor are planned for the space before it opens.

The last two restaurants in the space have been Italian — Breda's and Modena's — but neither lasted more than a few years. The new eatery will include pub fare for bowlers along with its Southeast Asian menu.

The restaurant space is part of the bowling alley, operated by the Soule family as DBD Partners.
