Nan Modern Food, the Thai-French BYOB that was turning table at the corner of 40th and Chestnut streets long before City Tap House, and Jose Garcess Mexican-flavored Distrito arrived on the scene there, is closed. Its been out of commission since spring, while pioneering chef Kamol Phutlek dealt with health issues, according to the Insider. But its now gone for good. Its replacement, Saigon Cuisine, a modern Vietnamese venture from clothing designer Joey Sang, is six or so weeks away from opening. [Insider]
