New Vietnam Cafe opening Nov. 17

Benny Lai's larger West Philly outpost is on track.

New Vietnam Cafe opening Nov. 17

Benny Lai and the family of Vietnam will close Vietnam Cafe -- their West Philly BYOB at 814 S. 47th St. -- after dinner this Sunday (11/8).

They will resurface in their new, larger space next door on Nov. 17.

The new Vietnam Cafe (816 S. 47th St.) used to be Abbraccio. For 30 days, it will run as a BYOB and then pick up a liquor license -- making it similar to the original Vietnam in Chinatown at 221 N. 11th St.
