UPDATE: The owner of Saigon Bistro claims the restaurant is NOT for sale as previously reported by BiteClub. In an email to PD sales staff (phone calls and emails to BiteClub have not be returned at this time), Kim Ngo says that the information obtained by BiteClub about the 4-month old restaurant being for sale is incorrect.
What’s the hubub about? A recent online posting on a local classified site stated, “Our beautiful downtown Santa Rosa restaurant is for sale. The owner is retiring from the business. Please check out our website www.saigonbistrosr.com.” Who posted the ad is still a mystery. The downtown restaurant is the fourth tennant to occupy the space in the last two years, preceeded by Vivere, Nirvana and Tahini Grill. BiteClub stands by the information available at the time of the posting.
Also listed on Craigslist for sale is Trisha’s Lumpia which relocated from Petaluma to Santa Rosa last spring. On two recent trips to the restaurant during business hours, the lights were off and the door locked. Also posted on the online classified site is the popular 50’s diner, the Stony Point Grill.
