Pho Tau Bay opens on Tulane Avenue_lowres

Pho Tau Bay is now open on Tulane Avenue.

Vietnamese restaurant Pho Tau Bay (1565 Tulane Ave., 504-368-9846) is now open on Tulane Avenue. The restaurant opened for lunch Thursday, May 5, following months of renovations to the space. 

The restaurant closed its longstanding Gretna location in February 2015 after the building it occupied was redeveloped. Before Hurricane Katrina, the restaurant had several locations, including the spot on Tulane Avenue, which has been closed since the storm and has since undergone extensive renovations.

[jump] The restaurant has had a loyal group of regulars since the original Gretna location opened in 1982. The spot is best-known for its use of fresh ingredients and authentic Vietnamese fare, including bun, spring rolls, pho and banh mi. According to an employee at the restaurant, most of the menu has stayed the same.

The restaurant's hours are subject to change. For now, the restaurant is open for dine-in customers Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will stay open till 7 p.m. for takeout.
