Ex-Fort Worth Vietnamese restaurant Four Sisters finds buzzy new home
An award-winning Vietnamese restaurant from Fort Worth is back in business: Four Sisters - Taste of Vietnam, the family-run restaurant that closed in December after four years, has re-opened, this time in super-buzzy Mansfield.
The restaurant is now located at 3806 E. Broad St. #124, in a space that was previously home to an Asian restaurant called Sprouts Springroll and Pho. Its opening was celebrated with a festive ribbon-cutting by Visit Mansfield, who clearly know how to make a restaurant feel welcome.
Owner Tuan Pham blamed the closure of his Fort Worth location at 1001 S. Main St. on construction.
"So much is happening down the street, and Four Sisters being the only tenant on my side of Main Street was tough," Pham said when he closed it down. "It was a tremendous run, but this chapter is coming to a close."
A Fort Worth native, Pham previously worked at restaurants such as Shinjuku Station and Tokyo Café, before opening Four Sisters in late 2018 — named for his sisters, with a cuisine inspired by his mother that honored the Vietnamese cooking of his childhood.
Four Sisters also made the 2019 list of Best New Restaurants in the state by Texas Monthly magazine, the only restaurant in Fort Worth to make the list that year.
The menu ranges from shaken beef and lemongrass tofu, to trendy items like bao buns, pho, stir-fried lobster, and crab fried rice. The restaurant also has a liquor license, with craft cocktails.
The buzz in Mansfield is strong: It's one of the few cities so far that will get its own location of Texas supermarket chain H-E-B. It's also getting a location of Portillo's, the cult-favorite Chicago-style hot dog chain, and it's one of only three cities in DFW so far to get a location of the Miami-based pizza chain Mister O1. Buzz buzz!
