Eating Out - February 25, 2011

Shop Talk

MADAME TAM EXPANDS ...  It's only been six months since the tiny Vietnamese restaurant came on the scene, but Madame Tam Bistro at 322 University Ave. in Palo Alto already is making plans to expand. The bistro is taking over its next-door vacancy at 320 University, which was left empty when Satura Cakes abruptly closed in July. "We're excited and anxious at the same time," Ringo Le said. Le, who is the son of Tam Minh Le, owner of the restaurant, said: "We never thought we'd have such an overwhelming response so soon. We have lines out the door on Friday nights." The hope is there will be no more lines when the 1,600-square-foot restaurant is enlarged to about double its current size, ideally by late spring.
