Chinatown's face has been changing of late, with Ramen Boy springing up on Ninth Street and Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noodle sliding a block west on Race Street. Next up: Vietnam House at the corner of Ninth and Race Streets, which owner Andy Tang tells me will open Sunday, May 6.
Andy's, the 24-hour diner operation with locations in Conshohocken, Springfield (Delco), and Trevose, is taking the brave step of opening in the former Drafting Room on Bethlehem Pike in sleepy Spring House.
The Plaza Café at Table 31 outside the Comcast Center will open for the outdoor lunch and dinner season on Thursday, May 3. Nighttime party will include drink specials.
Weekend brunch starts Saturday, May 5 at SoWe at 22d and Carpenter Streets.
