Since the closure of Lemongrass in 2014, Deep Ellum has been devoid of a great place to slurp a big bowl of pho. Which is a real shame, especially when you consider the sheer numbers of hangovers that are born at the neighborhood’s bars every single night. Now, a new concept will offer the world's greatest hangover cure at a prime spot in the neighborhood’s thriving dining scene.
Pho Bowl, a casual Asian fusion eatery, will open its doors at 2807 Commerce St, a stone’s throw from Buzzbrews’ Deep Ellum outpost. The menu will blend Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisine, featuring dishes like orange chicken and Korean BBQ ribs alongside traditional bowls of beef noodle soup. Salads, noodle bowls, banh mi and dumplings will also be on offer.
No official opening date has been announced, but Pho Bowl hopes to soft-open by the first week of March. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner, and take-out options will be available. No word yet on whether or not Pho Bowl will realize the seriously pressing need for late-night pho in Deep Ellum and decide to expand those dinner hours until at least midnight.
