Would love a few bites of this Cool Vietnamese Salad at 'Bun' Grand Opening Bash in Soho (Oct 22)?

Not sure what Bun stood for in the Vietnamese food world, I tried to find out and the consensus seems to be that Bun is an essential ingredient in a Cool Vietnamese Noodle Salad for Warm Days as described in a very detailed recipe by Mai Pham (via Fine Cooking).

Bun is a vermicelli like rice noodle.

I will see if they appear on the tasting menu tomorrow at BUN Restaurant in Soho, New  York when I pop in for the opening party.

By the way, can anyone tell me what the correct pronunciation is for BUN.

We'll see if I can approximate it.

Merci beaucoup!

A few months back, I started noticing a $9.99 charge ($10.69) for downloads (that I did not make) on my cell phone bill. Poring over older...
