Nguyen, returning from a cooking stint in China, will take over the restaurant’s menu this Friday night. The restaurant will operate on its normal schedule, and Xiao Bao’s Joey Ryan says Nguyen’s Vietnamese-inflected dishes will be priced in line with the standard Xiao Bao menu.
“He is an amazing guy, and a big part of the inspiration for Josh choosing to cook for a living,” Ryan says of Nguyen. “We are happy to have him here and share his perspective with our guests.”
The restaurant opens at 5:30 p.m. for dinner.
