The "forced displacement" will take place in six to 12 months, he says. But he also announces that plans for an entirely second concept, which were underway before this hubbub, are also taking root. So look for something new from Ng soon.
About having to stop lunch service: the recent flooding damaged some of the kitchen equipment, which means they can't make those awesome Vietnamese baguettes any more. And that bread, like any great sandwich, is integral to the banh mi, which were the core of the lunch menu. No more catfish banh mi for us. Sigh. Ng adds via the announcement: "We remain committed to our dinner service, while we search for new spaces to relocate The Spice Table and for our new restaurant. Lunch will resume at the relocated The Spice Table, wherever that may be."
