Fans of My Tho – and there are many – are used to the Vietnamese restaurant at Central and Emporia closing for weeks or months at a time.
Often it’s for owners Mai Vu and Hai Van to take trips to Vietnam. Sometimes it’s for remodeling or just for a break. But generally, it doesn’t come in the dead of winter – the months diners most crave the restaurant’s pho.
This time, though, it is.
Long Van, Vu and Van’s son, says the restaurant will be closed from Tuesday until March 26.
A family member’s illness is part of the reason for the timing, he says.
He also has plans of his own for the three months.
“I’m just going to try to find good places to eat.”
