Bunker Vietnamese will be moving out of its Ridgewood location before the month is over.

The restaurant, located at 46-63 Metropolitan Ave. near the Brooklyn/Queens border, will be closing down this location on Nov. 15. Bunker Vietnamese will reopen in a new East Williamsburg location on Nov. 29.


“We were limited by that space in Ridgewood,” owner Jimmy Tu told Bushwick Daily. “We want to serve serious food in a fun environment.”

The new Brooklyn location has been under renovation for the past six months. The new space will include an outdoor seating area with a garden and a rooftop deck, allowing them to serve more patrons than they could at their Maspeth location.

At the new location, Bunker Vietnamese will also be able to expand their menu, which has been described by the The New York Times as “some of the best Vietnamese street-style food in New York.” Additionally, in the coming months Bunker will be opening up a general store next to the restaurant.
