A restaurant space that recently went dark will be springing back to life soon as a Vietnamese restaurant sporting a full bar is slated to open in Jersey City’s Hamilton Park neighborhood.
Earlier this summer, New Thanh Hoai shuttered at 234 10th Street. The space, situated on the ground floor of Silverman’s Schroeder Lofts building, has seen signage emerge in recent days indicating that a new endeavor could be in the works and a recent hearing has confirmed a new eatery is set to take over.
An entity dubbed LVQ1 LLC recently applied to take over the liquor license at the property and indicated via a public notice they will be doing business as “Corner Pho.” Little is known about the business as of this point, but a recent post from Silverman Building indicated that perhaps even the name of the restaurant is not set in stone.
“New Vietnamese Restaurant coming soon,” declared Silverman’s Instagram account in a recent post. The company then encouraged locals to “guess the name” and stated that “the restaurant owners would love some ideas from the neighborhood.”
The winner, according to the company, gets “complimentary meals opening week.” It’s unclear exactly when Corner Pho or a differently named restaurant will be opening at the space, but residents who have been missing their Vietnamese fix are surely excited by the news.
The news of Corner Pho’s arrival comes just days after another Vietnamese spot, Quick Pho, was approved to open in Jersey City’s McGinley Square neighborhood.
