Bench gets pho & vegan eatery

Boise's Vista Village is set to be home to the second outlet for 208 Pho & Vegan.

The restaurant opened its first location in the former Jim's Coffee Shop location near the Boise Co-Op last year.

"We're excited to be bringing new tastes to the Bench and to be expanding our evening appeal,"  Vista Village's Andrew Jacobs said (disclosure: my cousin; my family owns and operates Vista Village). 

208 Pho & Vegan will open in the former Blimpie space -- that business consolidated with the Moxie Java next door.
