A Vietnamese restaurant in Quincy recently opened a new outpost in Kenmore Square, taking over the space at 468 Commonwealth Ave. from a shuttered French restaurant. Pho Countryside has officially opened, as Boston Restaurant Talk reported and an employee reached at the Quincy location Wednesday morning confirmed.
Pho Countryside made plans to take over the Kenmore Square restaurant space in September, as previously reported. The new restaurant offers the same menu as its original Quincy location, which includes plenty of pho and a handful of hot pot options, plus vegetable dishes, rice plates with different toppings, and an assortment of other seafood and meat entrees.
Pho Countryside took over for Josephine, which served classic Parisian dishes and closed down in August 2016 after about a year in business.
In other Boston/Quincy pho expansion news, but in the opposite direction, Chinatown’s Pho Pasteur recently expanded to Quincy.
