As for the ole BD, we visited the now defunct Pho Mien Tay last summer and were very impressed. (We were actually going to follow up on a tip about a place called World of Taste Seafood, but it had been replaced by Pho Mien Tay). When we returned earlier this fall, we found Pho Mien Tay closed and vacant, but saw an alternative across the street, Com Tam Ninh Kieu. To be honest, we liked PMT much better. CTNK had way too much tripe in its pho, and the Banh Mi I got was not as tasty.

Well it seems that the location of PMT is now up and running as a new Vietnamese eatery called Pho Saigon. ErLu hasn't visited Pho Saigon yet, so we are unable to render a verdict in this Indochinese imbroglio. For those of you who have indulged, please share your reactions and reviews in the comments section. Let's get to the bottom of this for Sam's sake.
