New Vietnamese restaurant, Bún DC, coming to 2905 Sherman Ave


This is neat: a reader sent me this photo of 2905 Sherman Avenue NW, where it looks like a new Vietnamese place is going in. The sign reads "BÚN DC Vietnamese 'Soc Trang' Homestyle Cuisine." Bún is a type of Vietnamese noodle bowl. Soc Trang is a coastal area so maybe that means more seafood dishes.

The reader who sent me the photo thinks it may be connected with Pho Viet, the tasty little spot on 14th Street near Otis. Here's what they had to say:
This house has been abandoned for at least three years and all of sudden in the last 2 months a lot of work has been done. I am not 100% sure, but I could’ve sworn I saw a couple people leave the house one evening with “Pho Viet” shirts. Now today this sign popped up on the house. I hope the pho viet crew are opening a new restaurant.
If that's true, it's a good sign. The Post, for example, says Pho Viet has the best pho in town. I can't find anything more about this spot, but will update as I hear more.
