PoP Pho Patrol: Blackbyrd to be Renamed and become a Vietnamese Restaurant and Pho house at 14th and U Street, NW

2005 14th St, NW

Last month we learned that Marvin had expanded into the second floor of Blackbyrd located at 2005 14th St, NW just north of U Street. Turns out much bigger changes are in store for the first floor of Blackbyrd (which opened back in July 2011.) Blackbyrd is going to change names and become a Vietnamese Restaurant and Pho house headed by Executive Chef James Claudio and his Vietnamese grandmother, Lap Claudio.

The Claudios are currently finalizing the menu but you can “expect steaming bowls of pho, (Bun) pork over vermicelli, Bahn Mi and hand made spring rolls”. Additionally they will serve Tiki cocktails, created by Brendan Murphy, who will headline the beverage program. While the new restaurant is aiming to have a grand opening November 5 you can get a sneak peek of the new look over the next 2 weekends.
