Another classic Miami restaurant is closing its doors for good. This time its long standing Vietnamese restaurant, Hy Vong, which will have its last dinner service this Friday, October 30.
The popular restaurant, which is also a member of our Eater 38, has been housed in the same spot on Calle Ocho for 36 years, but it seems as if Hy Vong's landlord wants the space back. Its owner Kathy Manning said that she is currently looking at different spots to move the restaurant to, but it seems only if time will tell if they do end up relocating the restaurant.
UPDATE: Miami.com is reporting that the restaurant has worked out an agreement with its landlord to extend its lease for one more year, meaning it will remain open through the end of 2016. [Miami.com]
UPDATE 2: Well, it seems we spoke too soon. Hy Vong is indeed closing tonight, per it's latest tweet. Last service will be this evening.
Looks like a 36th year on Calle Ocho isn't meant to be. We're out. Last day is Oct 30. We'll take a R&R break & return to new a location.— Hy Vong (@hyvongmiami) October 29, 2015
