Ribbon cut on new Vietnamese restaurant in Albany

ALBANY – You can now get a taste of Vietnam in the heart of downtown Albany.

The ribbon was cut on Banh Mi 47 on Tuesday.

The restaurant is located at 74 North Pearl Street.

Banh Mi is the Vietnamese word for a traditional baguette made from wheat flour, and the name of the sandwich made with that bread.

The restaurant’s menu includes authentic Vietnamese sandwiches and coffee.

The restaurant is owned by Mike and Stacy Nguyen. Stacy used to be an employee here at NewsChannel 13.
