Rice Paper Owner Opening New Vietnamese Bistro in Scottsdale
You may not have heard of restaurateurs and sisters Hue and Lan Tran, but chances are you're probably familiar with their restaurants: Rice Paper, the modern Vietnamese restaurant in Phoenix opened in 2011; Saigon Kitchen, their family's two-year-old traditional Vietnamese eatery in Surprise; and Bonjour Vietnam, the duo's French-Vietnamese spot inside downtown's Hotel San Carlos, opened last October.
The latest concept, a Vietnamese bistro, is planned to open this fall. And this time, it's in Scottsdale.
Called Slanted Rice Vietnamese Bistro, the new restaurant will be located at 6149 North Scottsdale Road (in The Shops at Hilton Village) and will open in November.
According to the Republic, Slanted Rice will be a combination of Rice Paper and Saigon Kitchen and will be owned and operated by one of the sisters, Hue Tran, along with her fiancé, Tyrone Chu.
