Vietnamese Mini-Chain Rumored to Replace Shuttered Heights Bistro

Possible new tenant could be around much longer than its predecessor.

If you've journeyed down White Oak Drive in the last two months, you may have noticed some activity at the site of shuttered French bistro, Salé Sucré. Sources say the activity is due to a possible new tenant who may have recently signed a lease for the 2916 White Oak Drive property.

The new occupant rumored for the Heights is Pho Binh, a well-known Houston mini-chain specializing in
Vietnamese cuisine, more specifically pho — the soup with a flavorful broth, meat, aromatics and noodles. Pho Binh was recently recognized by Food Republic as one of Houston's best 12 restaurants.

Efforts to contact DC Heights LP, owners of the property, for confirmation were unsuccessful. If the rumors are true, with Pho Binh's popularity and their rich, beefy broth-based soups, the noodle restaurant will likely do well
. Should the unstoppable pho restaurant move in, this will be the seventh location for the eatery. Other outposts include the original trailer location in southeast Houston, two on Bellaire Boulevard, one on Westheimer and on Barker Cypress, plus a location which opened last year on the Southwest Freeway.
