Benny Lai of Vietnam opening a fish house


Benny Lai, head of the family run Vietnam in Chinatown and its offshoot, Vietnam Cafe, in West Philly, is looking toward a fall opening of Grillfish Cafe, an Asian seafooder at 814 S. 47th St.  (It's the old Vietnam Cafe space before Vietnam Cafe took over the Abbraccio space next door.) 

He's going for a liquor license. Appetizers will cost $10 to $12; entrees $15 to $18. Dishes will include mussels, clams, octopus, head-on shrimp, whole grilled branzino, and striped bass.
