VIỆTVANA Phở Noodle House opening in Midtown Atlanta on Feb. 17

VIETVANA Founders Khanh Dang & Dinh Tran

“We know exactly where all of our ingredients are from,” said VIETVANA Founder Dinh Tran, “and we’re proud to support local, Georgia farmers.”

ATLANTA (PRWEB) February 14, 2020
VIỆTVANA Phở Noodle House is opening its second Atlanta location at Square on Fifth at 848 Spring Street NW on Monday, Feb. 17, 2020, bringing modern Vietnamese cuisine to the Midtown and Georgia Tech communities.
The new location will feature the cuisine husband and wife team Dinh Tran and Khanh Dang have made popular at their first VIỆTVANA in Avondale Estates. The restaurant’s name reflects the idea of Vietnamese food meeting nirvana, or VIỆTVANA.
“We’re thrilled to keep expanding our restaurant business,” said Tran, who creates the recipes with his mother, Tina Nguyen, who also can often be found in the restaurants’ kitchens.
VIỆTVANA’s mission is to change the narrative of Vietnamese food around the world… starting with locally-sourced, authentic cuisine in Atlanta that reminds the founders of what they enjoy in their families’ kitchens back in Saigon – recipes honed over hundreds of years from different cultures and regions across Vietnam. This mission sent the restaurateurs on a quest to create their own phở noodle and banh mi bread, with both prepared fresh in-house daily.
They spent months creating their own phở noodle recipe, made in the restaurant daily (as opposed to coming from a package). “They give the broth a cleaner taste, as the noodles don’t affect the broth flavor,” Tran says. They also collaborated with a local French bakery to make their banh mi bread batter, which is cooked fresh in the restaurants.
Tran and Dang, a millennial couple, are dedicated to having the freshest products – the way they remember meals in Vietnam. The flavors emanate from the meat and vegetables instead of sugar and salt. They also meet with their suppliers – almost entirely Georgia-based – ensuring high quality meats and veggies delivered daily are the main ingredients of their dishes.
“We know exactly where all of our ingredients come from,” Tran said, “including the beef, chicken and vegetables that go into our phở broth. And we’re proud to support local, Georgia farmers.”
This is the second restaurant for the pair and a third VIỆTVANA is under construction at 2550 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth and will open later this year.
Please note: VIỆTVANA is offering a free BBQ sandwich for the first 50 customers at the Midtown location every day from Feb. 17 to Feb. 21.

AMC's The Walking Dead Alums Team Up to Produce New Wave Rom-Com Film, Fanfare, With a Debut Reading in Atlanta By Ann Mahoney

I was watching ‘End of theF***ing World’ on Netflix, and this idea of two people burning their lives down was enchanting to me. Then, I wondered why no one ever writes stories like THAT about women in their 40s. So, I wrote about it. And FANFARE was born.

ATLANTA (PRWEB) January 23, 2020
Ann Mahoney and Jason Kirkpatrick of AMC’s The Walking Dead host a live reading of Mahoney’s original rom-com entitled, FANFARE, a timely women-centric project at The Warren Club, 818 N. Highland Ave N.E. on Wednesday, February 5th, at 7:30 pm. Cash bar and meet and greets available before and after the reading.
Ann Mahoney says, “I was watching ‘End of theF***ing World’ on Netflix, and this idea of two people burning their lives down was enchanting to me. Then, I wondered why no one ever writes stories like THAT about women in their 40s. So, I wrote about it. And FANFARE was born.”
Jason Kirkpatrick, known for his work on The Walking Dead and Deepwater Horizon, said, “What’s great about this script is this idea that you make these stupid, rash decisions as a young person, based on what people tell you should and shouldn’t be, and then you wake up one day and realize you’re 40, and stuck in a life you don’t recognize. It sounds tragic, but it’s simultaneously touching and hilarious because everyone recognizes that struggle.”
The event is open to the public and will be attended by potential producers looking for women-centric films, as well as several female directors. The cast, who will read multiple roles, is stacked with fellow Walking Dead alums, including Jeremy Palko, who recurred as Andy from The Hilltop.
Palko expressed his excitement about the reading, “I laughed out loud on every page! I’ve been a big fan of Ann’s writing for some time now, and she isn’t afraid to go to any lengths to show the humor in humanity. She can craft a slapstick comedy moment, just as well as she tells a shit joke.”
Adding to the talented cast slate will be 2019 Broadway World’s Best Actress, Wendy Melkonian, renowned beauty queen and stand-up comedienne Lace Larabee, and Scream Queens actress Hope Leigh.
