Mama Pho opened inside an old McDonald's last year.
Several readers contacted me over the long weekend with news that Mama Pho Vietnamese Restaurant
at the intersection of South Grand Boulevard and Chippewa Street might have shut its doors.
I haven't had a chance to visit Mama Pho yet today, but according to a reader's email, a sign stating the owners are "on vacation" has been posted on its front door since Halloween. Now, that same reader informs me, there is a "for lease" sign in the window.
The restaurant opened in November of last year, which suggests its closure could be tied to the expiration of its lease.
A call to to Mama Pho's listed phone number rang several times before connecting to a recorded message asking the caller to input an access code. More as I learn it.
