We Are Back!
Thanks to your invaluable contributions and support, we are excited to announce the reopening of Co Tu on Tuesday, January 17th. During our hiatus, we rested and healed, while working hard to improve our physical space, operation and online presence. We cannot wait to welcome you back and continue what we love doing the most: warming your soul (and belly) with our authentic Vietnamese and Chinese dishes during this chilly Holiday season!
Cô Tư (Lady Number Four) is named after and inspired by our mother. A war refugee and mother of nine, she first set foot in America in the late 90's, paving the way for her children to later settle in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Growing up through all the adversities, she taught us the value of caring for our neighbors and being kind, often through her food.
Inspired by her caring nature as well as our passion for cooking, we opened Cô Tư in 2018, hoping to share our heritage and experience through our food and service, to the Bloomington community, the great state of Minnesota and this country that we proudly call home. Combining the expertise of Mai (left), a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, and the experience of Vietnamese-Chinese cooking from her sister, Thao (center) and Cuong (right), who ran their own successful restaurant in Saigon as wife and husband, we work hard to bring authentic Southeast Asian flavors and hospitality to you!
