Baguette Bros, a new Asian sandwich shop, is headed to Convoy by the end of October. The adorable bespectacled, mustachioed and bow tie-wearing baguettes in the logo represent the owners, brothers Tri, Quy and Phu Phan, who are currently building out the 1,200-square-foot space into a 40-seat eatery. The brothers are installing TVs and will offer free wifi, hoping that the shop will become a popular hangout.
Specializing in Vietnamese sandwiches, or banh mi, Baguette Bros' menu spans from traditional versions piled with cold cuts or barbecue pork to fusion varieties including satay chicken, Korean bulgogi and braised pork belly; the nine-inch sandwiches, which range from $6 to $8, will all come with a side of fresh shrimp chips. There are also appetizers, running from fish sauce wings to French fries topped with bulgogi, kim chi and an egg, and they'll serve bottled beer, plus boba and coffee drinks.
