New Vietnamese Restaurant Coming to Brooklyn Heights

On the corner of Montague and Henry Streets in Brooklyn Heights, where The Greens kosher vegetarian restaurant used to be, the Kim Paris Vietnamese Grill is preparing to open. At one point the "Island Grill" was rumored to be opening in the spot, but that deal seems to have fallen through.

Locals' mouths are watering at the thought of Vietnamese food, especially since Saigon Garden on Remsen Street closed.

A Chowhound contributer says The Greens closed "because the proprietors were getting on in years and their children preferred to focus on the non-kosher downstairs restaurant..."

I recommend the dish called "bun," as in chicken bun. The grilled chicken skewers at Kim Paris are unusually delicious. (They're on a bed of room-temp rice noodles, so don't be freezing when you're eating. It's not quite a hot dish.)
