Cathay Bank Takes Over Former New Saigon Space

Since January, when long-time tenant New Saigon Restaurant closed its doors, people have been wondering what will take its place in the storefront at 5000 North Broadway.

Well, now we know.  Reader MH sent in this photo and says, "Identity revealed ... a really nice Cathay Bank sign has been put up at the former site of New Saigon.  Cathay actually was/is right next door to Furama across the street, so it's a pretty close move.  But I think this is a nicer-looking site for them."

It's such a great classic space, with the vintage Chicago hex-tile floors, that we hope the rehab keeps some of the character.

  1. Another damn bank. What a shame. Shoulda been a sports bar (probably was a bar earlier in its life).
