Vietnam Grill goes for a liquor license

Vietnam Grill has been slinging pho and spring rolls from its Federal Boulevard strip mall spot for a few years, but now the eatery is hoping to add alcoholic pairings to the menu. The restaurant just applied for its liquor license, and if all goes according to plan, it'll add beer, wine and spirits to its repertoire.

And that's good news, since there's no better pairing for a big bowl of broth and noodles than a crisp, cold light beer.

The restaurant goes before the city's Department of Excise and Licenses on July 15.
