The City of Keene is asking a Vietnamese restaurant slated to open this spring to change its name.
The restaurant has a lease with the city to operate out of the same building as City Hall.
But its proposed name, Pho Keene Great, has prompted complaints, said City Manager Elizabeth Dragon.
Pho, pronounced “fuh,” is a kind of Vietnamese soup. “Pho Keene” is intended to sound like a profanity, Dragon said.
