After months of patient anticipation, Flowers of Vietnam is finally reopening its doors to the public tonight in Southwest Detroit. The restaurant helmed by chef George Azar is returning in a fully renovated and expanded space on West Vernor.

The official launch was announced this evening on the restaurant’s social media pages, following a week’s worth of soft openings.

The revamped space designed by Et al. Collaborative features a similar layout to the original pop-up inside Vernor Coney Island with the kitchen and prep area running along the east wall. The space is now partially separated from the main dining room by a set of windows. In the center, customers are seated at a mixture of black upholstered booths and two-top tables. What’s new to the original dining space is a large, square bar area situated in a previously unoccupied portion of the building.

Azar has left much of the menu from the original restaurant untouched. Customers can look forward to returning favorites like the Korean-fried caramel chicken wings, cơm tấm (broken rice), and Vietnamese egg cream coffee. From the bar, expect a range of craft beers and domestics as well as a handful of cocktails and an impressive wine list assembled by beverage director Anna Atanassova.

We did it. 5-12, come and get it.
