Hue opening a new Vietnamese restaurant in East Tosa

For the seventh straight year, October is Dining Month on, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2013."

After nearly four years of success with their Bay View Location, Carina (Cat) Tran and Mark Nielsen have announced their plans to open a second Hue Vietnamese Restaurant on the east corridor of North Avenue in Wauwatosa in spring 2014.

The restaurant partners are working with developer, Joshua Jeffers, Principal of J. Jeffers and Co. A complete interior and exterior renovation is planned for the building located at 6519 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa. Plans include a large patio behind the building.

The space will be yet another feather in the bonnet of East Tosa, which has been encouraging the development of new independent restaurants (read more on their plans in this article from last spring).

Tran and Nielsen, known for creating accessible food in a friendly, modern environment, say that they are eager to continue sharing the herbs, spices, and fragrant aromas of Vietnamese, but will offer a more extensive and refined menu to Wauwatosa patrons. Plans include lunch and dinner service, along with a craft cocktail program and a diverse selection of Asian beers.

Nielsen has worked in the service industry for 15 years. Tran, who takes inspiration from traditional family dishes she grew up eating, is a 12-year veteran of the meeting and events industry and is self-taught in the restaurant industry.
