Those still mourning the loss of recently shuttered Lucky Burger on Richmond might be happy to learn that a banh mi drive-thru will be replacing it. After Swamplot shared an Instagram shot of the shop's keys posted to Oui Banh Mi's account, Eater reached out to its owners, the Les Givral's Kahve founders, for some info. Co-owner Qui Ly told Eater: "Yes, Oui Banh Mi is coming to 1601 Richmond," adding that they hope to have it open by the end of this year "if everything goes smoothly." When asked why he chose this location, Ly said it was obvious. "It's a great location, an iconic one at that. And the drive-thru is the main attraction for us," he explained.
When the Vietnamese sandwich shop does make its Montrose debut next to just-opened beer bar Revelry on Richmond, it will feature a case of Oui Desserts treats, including [macarons], tarts, and pastries from that sibling establishment. Looking ahead, Ly tells us that "more locations will be forthcoming."
