The beloved Saigon Sisters, who started their Vietnamese-food kiosk at the Chicago French Market, are growing up. Started in late 2009, their baby is expanding to a real, counter-service, breakfast-lunch-dinner restaurant in the Fulton River District (and don't worry -- the French Market location will still be there). The Sisters plan to set up shop in late fall at 567 W. Lake Street, serving the same kinds of dishes that kept its customers coming back for more phở and bánh mì.
The new spot will include:
- A "more inventive" menu, including tapas-style Vietnamese street food -- partly thanks to new executive chef Matt Eversman
- Longer hours
- Seating -- the restaurant will hold about 40 people
- Booze, like wines and Asian beers

UPDATE: Breakfast and lunch service at the Saigon Sisters restaurant is slated to begin October 1, with dinner to follow in early November.
