I’ve heard many claim that Pho 14 (1436 Park Road, NW) has the best Pho within the city (not including Northern Virginia). I don’t doubt it because every weekend evening I’ve tried to go the place has been packed. Fortunately, a tipster gave me some very good news which I have confirmed on Tues. afternoon – Pho 14 is expanding next door into the former spot of Simply Soles at 1438 Park Road, NW. But that’s not all – Pho 14 will also be expanding their menu by 30-50 items. You can see their current menu here. When pressed for some additions they told me they’d be adding ‘hot pot’ which is when the food is cooked in the center of the table. Pending no trouble with permits, they’ll be taking down a wall to combine the two storefronts and hope to open the new space with the new menu in October. I think that’s a bit ambitious and will predict a Nov. expansion but all in all this is great news!
