Progress on Two Sisters Vietnamese Kitchen, coming soon to East Liberty.



Two Sisters Vietnamese Kitchen looks just about done, with new signage up and considerable work done to the interior. It has been coming soon to 216 N. Highland Ave. since April, and initially had a Summer 2018 target open date.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had a profile on the restaurant and its ownership in May.
A pair of Pittsburgh newcomers are in the process of opening Two Sisters Vietnamese Kitchen, on track to debut late summer at 216 N. Highland Ave. in East Liberty. It will be a casual, sit-down BYOB Vietnamese restaurant serving pho, rice bowls and Vietnamese-style vermicelli dishes.

Vietnamese native Trinh Phan and partner Trang Somphonphakdy moved from a city that’s a Vietnamese hub, Atlantic City, N.J., where Mr. Somphonphakdy was longtime restaurant employee.

The pair were convinced to relocate by Ben Wong and his wife, Kellie Truong: Ms. Truong is a partner of Banh Mi and Ti in Lawrenceville with her sister, Tuyen Truong, a restaurant that opened in in 2016 with a menu focused on variations of banh mi sandwiches, summer rolls and rice bowls.
