Kingston Station owner Nguyen and chef Dana Love are collaborating on a second project, Sa Pa, set to open in early February (so any day now, really). Named for a region in Nguyen’s native Vietnam, the fast-casual lunch spot is going to be located in the space formerly occupied by Hot Tomatoes (92 Bedford St.). The menu, created with input from Nguyen and his mother who would occasionally bring ingredients for Love to play with, includes a “rave-worthy” mushroom pâté, a beautifully balanced vegetarian pho broth and meat offerings like chicken, beef short ribs, and a sake-cured salmon. Nguyen’s family, including his mother, has signed off on all the dishes, so they’re pretty much good to go. Keep an eye out for details about the official opening date and plan on stopping by.
