Shank & Bone Vietnamese Restaurant To Replace The Safehouse In North Park

November 6, 2017

Heading into the space previously occupied by The Safehouse in San Diego's North Park community is Shank & Bone, a Vietnamese restaurant and bar collaboration from the owners of Hillcrest's Ebisu Sushi and Kearny Mesa's Crab Town.

Owned by husband & wife founders Chef Jay Choy & Han Tran, who have owned Ebisu Sushi in Hillcrest for 14 years, as well as Lam Nguyen and Phuc H Voong, owners of Kearny Mesa's Crab Town, Shank & Bone will serve a menu of Vietnamese fare, including an eclectic variety of pho noodle soup options, rice plates, vermicelli noodle (bun) salad bowls, spring rolls, and Bahn mi sandwiches, as well as 15 taps of local craft beer, bottled beer from Vietnam, wine and sake.

"The mix of old with new, traditional with modern, weathered with sleek are what defines Saigon and its food," explained co-owner Han Tran. "We hope to capture that spirit at Shank & Bone, and pair it with a solid selection of beer that we are so fortunate to have all around us here in San Diego. We were also granted permission to use an art piece by famous street artist Shepard Fairey and will be incorporating that into our design."

Shank & Bone is anticipated to open at 2930 University Avenue in San Diego's North Park community as early as December 2017. For more information, visit the Facebook Page.
