Tân Lạc Viên opens in Squirrel Hill.

The much-anticipated Tân Lạc Viên Vietnamese Bistro opened Wednesday on 2114 Murray Ave. in Squirrel Hill (map). Here's a look at the menu, which at over 90 entrees spread across Southeast and East Asian cuisines looks a little overextended:

(It took several years of scanning and cropping to realize it's the menus that are slightly crooked, not my scanner, but I wasn't in the mood to fight with them anymore.)

Construction started about seven weeks ago, and the awning went up on November 11th in what used to be an Italian restaurant.

On November 11.
