Major fire at Mai's in Midtown

Looks like Mai's will be closed for quite awhile. The fire destroyed the 2nd floor with the roof collapsing. It is a shame, whether you liked the restaurant or not. My daughters have been going to Mai's for quite a long time, and introduced me to it a few years back. We even got my DH to try it, which is saying a lot! The pork spring rolls were the best, as was the Bo Luc Lac (?) It was a gathering place for one daughter's birthday celebrations, and her children have cut their teeth there. Mai, the owner, says they will rebuild, but who knows how long that will take. Sort of ironic that it burned the day before another "institution" in Houston, namely Brennan's, is set to re-open. Shouldn't take Mai's as long to rebuild, though. Now, to find another vietnamese restaurant we all like . . .
