A Taste of Maketto Comes to 14th Street

Chef Erik Bruner-Yang opens a pop-up of a future concept at Hanoi House.

Sorry, 14th Streeters, you’re not getting another branch of Toki Underground. Despite rumors last week, chef Erik Bruner-Yang isn’t turning Hanoi House into a sister ramen joint. Instead, the toque and partner Will Sharp of Durkl have planned a three-month “residency” at the Vietnamese spot for their upcoming retail-restaurant concept, Maketto, slated to open on H Street toward the end of the year.

Gone—at least temporarily—are the bowls of pho. Instead you’ll find homages to Asian street food from the team and chef de cuisine James Wozniuk. A frequently changing family-style dinner is on offer for $30 (no changes or dietary restrictions allowed, as at Little Serow). There’s also a dim sum cart for those who’d like to pick their plates, but reservations are still required via Hanoi House’s OpenTable account. You can make them starting next week, July 8.

The new concept starts on July 15, and will run Monday through Saturday starting at 5. There’s no word yet on whether Hanoi House will return to its original form come October. The spot, operated by brothers Eric and Ian Hilton, already underwent one makeover when it transformed from Blackbyrd Warehouse to Hanoi House last November. As for Bruner-Yang, the chef is staying relatively mum following an arrest last week. Check back for more details as they become available.
