Saigon Café Finds A New Home @ Former Mode Urban Bistro

While there’s bad news for North Street today as a building comes down, there’s great news for Elmwood Avenue.

The long-vacant Mode Urban Bistro space at the corner of Elmwood and Utica finally has a new tenant. After Saigon Café found out that it was being displaced on Elmwood Avenue (by Louie’s Texas Red Hots that bought the building), the Saigon owners began looking around the city for a new location. That location turned out to be one of the best restaurant corners in the city.

This is great news for those Saigon fans who were sad to see the restaurant go. It’s also wonderful news for everyone who felt as if this location would sit empty for the rest of eternity.


With all of these new developments underway, it’s important that building and business owners, as well as residents, understand the new Green Code. To learn more about the Green Code sessions that are taking place today (5:30pm and 7pm), click here.
