Vinh Nguyen Cooking at Xiao Bao Biscuit This Friday Night

Xiao Bao Biscuit has settled on a date for the previously announced kitchen cameo by New York City chef Vinh Nguyen.

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.
