Hollywood Vietnamese and Chinese Cuisine will close down by the end of the month. Back in August plans came to light of a coming Farb Montrose full-block apartment complex at 2409 Montrose Blvd., a one-acre site once home to Cafe Noche but occupied since 2007 by Hollywood. A sign posted on the door last week informs the public of Hollywood’s demise by the end of the month; several staff members told Eater Houston’s Jakeisha Wilmore that Thanksgiving Eve will be its final day of service. How will Montrose late-night diners be able to cope without this vital pipeline to much-needed Lotus Delights, tofu spring rolls, and steaming bowls of ginger-laced Mama’s Hangover Chicken Soup? Turns out they won’t have to, at least not for long:
Eater reports that Hollywood will reopen about a block away in the little strip mall at 2409 Grant St., a short block east of its current location and the site of Hollywood’s original home, a storefront more recently housing the Hollywood Super Center variety store. The restaurant’s owners hope to have the new-old Hollywood restaurant back in business by next spring.
