Chop & Pub to open in Mountain View

Uploaded: Oct 9, 2017
UPDATE: Chop & Pub officially opened on Monday, Oct. 23.

A new establishment focused on booze and small plates is set to open soon in downtown Mountain View.

Owner Chau Le hopes to open Chop & Pub at 124 Castro St. in the next two weeks. He took over the space after East Street Tapas recently closed. East Street Tapas was the rebranded version of East Street Tacos, which was previously oyster bar Shell Shock.

Le owns a Vietnamese restaurant, Kobe Pho & Grill, with locations in Dublin and Cupertino, as well as Élyse Restaurant, a modern French-Vietnamese eatery he just opened in San Jose. He said he has long eyed Castro Street as an ideal location.

Chop & Pub will serve craft cocktails with "California style" tapas dishes such as grilled vegetables, Le said.

Job postings describe the establishment as a "gastropub" and "social eatery;" happy hour there will be called "social hour," Le said.

"We want to push that social interaction," he said.

Community.
What is it worth to you?

Please ask the Chef to comment on the new restaurant! The owner doesn't have a clear grasp on the type of food that will be served.
