Asian Box, the new fast-casual, Vietnamese/Thai concept from former Slanted Door chef Grace Nguyen and owner Frank Klein that we told you about earlier, is opening its flagship first location in Palo Alto tomorrow, Friday, right across from the Stanford stadium. We now have the menu, which is as simple and straightforward as we expected. The basic idea: you pick a base for your box (rice, noodles, or salad), you pick a protein, and you pick some toppings and a sauce.
Also of note: There's immediate plans to grow this chain outside the Peninsula, and potentially nationally, with two San Francisco locations planned for later this year.
