With a full bar.

Dig in, Belltown.

Since first reporting on the Green Leaf going in near Olympic Sculpture Park, Nosh has fielded many an anxious inquiry from Belltowners awaiting the opportunity to binge on banh xeo.

It’s time to dig in, folks.

Owner Ridgley Kuang says the restaurant at 2800 First Avenue will open its door on May 16 at noon. The menu is the same as at the revered ID original—so in addition to those banh xeo pancakes, expect vermicelli bowls and plenty of phos and rice dishes. What won’t be the same: the long waits. The new spot, located inside the Seattle Labor Temple Association, is apparently roomier than its cozy hole-in-the-wall sibling. Kuang says it seats 120 patrons and boasts a full bar.
