514 City Park Avenue, New Orleans LA 70119
Phone: (504) 482-6845
Status: Opens Saturday, January 11
Rumor on the street has been that one of the most-anticipated restaurants of 2014 MoPho will open tomorrow night, January 11, and today Todd A. Price verifies that it's true. Owners Michael and Jeff Gulotta and Jeffrey Bybee hosted a friends and family night on Thursday, with many a whos who of local industry including lots of people from the Besh camp Besh's biz partner Octavio Mantilla, Domenica's Alon Shaya and pastry chef Kelly Fields to name a few. Expect a line out the door this weekend for boozy bubble teas, bowls of pho and more Vietnamese-meets-Louisiana signature dishes, not to mention the swanky back patio with a fire pit for some serious meat-roasting. No word on hours at this time, sorry folks.
