I took a different route out of the Transbay Terminal this morning which took me by the site of the former Linda's Place (greasy-spoon Thai), which has morphed into a rather more upscale Vietnamese pho place called Perilla (which didn't sound very Asian to me until I googled it and found that perilla is another name for shiso). Banner across the front read "Grand Opening 8-8-08" although that doesn't mean it hasn't been open for a while. Anyone tried it? It looks kind of expensive, but the garlic noodles are calling me.
