RIVERSIDE — Linh’s Restaurant at 4770 Airway Road will close at or about the same time that its owners open the new, larger Lihn’s Bistro about a mile away at 5532 Airway Road in the Page Manor Shopping Center.
That move is expected to occur on Jan. 1, according to this story by my colleague Steven Matthews entitled “WPAFB, Wright State contribute to international businesses’ popularity” that was published in this morning’s Dayton Daily News.
When we first told you about the plans for the new Lihn’s Bistro back in August, the restaurant’s owners indicated they would likely keep both restaurants open, at least for a period of time. But the owners told Matthews — and servers at the restaurant confirmed during a lunchtime visit to Linh’s last week — that the existing location will shut down when the new restaurant opens its doors.
The new Linh’s Bistro will nearly double the seating capacity of the existing location, which seats less than 60 diners.
Linh’s serves Vietnamese and Chinese dishes, and it’s not uncommon, especially at lunch time, to find the existing restaurant filled to capacity. The move to the new location in Page Manor will allow the restaurant to expand its menu as well as its seating capacity, Mai Nguyen, the daughter of Linh’s owners Phan and Hoa Nguyen, said in August.
Linh’s specialties include several types of Pho, large bowls of soup with noodles served with a plate of vegetables and fresh herbs such as bean sprouts, Thai basil, cilantro, sliced jalapenos and lime wedges that diners add to the steaming broth.Tweet
