Been a fan of Maba Grill downtown and its Thursday night coin flip discounts? Well, you’re going to have to head down Baxter Street for your pho fix for a while. Maba is suddenly and unfortunately closed, leaving downtown bereft of banh mi (the sandwich occasionally available at Farm Cart, while delicious, doesn’t count). That noted, the space is soon to be occupied by a new business called Yummy Pho, which suggests that downtown really needs beef broth and bún. Here’s hoping the new place won’t be that different from the old one.
