Ever since Chego closed on Overland and relocated to Chinatown, we've wondered what would take over the strip mall's corner unit. Thankfully, we'll no longer have to rubberneck (much) when we drive by. Perry Cheung soon will open a Vietnamese restaurant called Phorage in the location. Construction is under way and Phorage is tentatively slated for an early July opening.
Perry Cheung Five-spice duck confit salad
The menu will reference in part Cheung's experiences as executive sous chef at the critically acclaimed Slanted Door in San Francisco, known for its upscale, contemporary Vietnamese cuisine. Except Cheung intends to strip down the approach. There'll be both beef and chicken pho, and a rotating range of soups. Look for daily specials, such as spicy tuna tartare and five-spice duck confit salad, which will be announced through the restaurant's social media network.More »
