A Guide to Michael Bao's Opened/Unopened Restaurants

The great thing about chef/restaurateur Michael Bao Huynh is that every time you think he's about to close a restaurant, he surprises you with three new concepts he's trying to get off the ground. Sometimes they come to fruition, sometimes they don't. It can be a lot to keep track of. So, here's a handy guide to every single Michael Bao project opened, planned or mentioned over the last three years. ?
