FIDI - The smartly websited Bamboo Asia will be opening on July 7th in the Financial District. It's a quick casual concept, divided into three stations, separately themed to Japan (sushi and sashimi salads and bowls), India (tandoori meats, curries) and Vietnam (bánh mì, noodle and rice bowls). Everything costs $8, is totally customizable and is being billed as "heathy." See pretty pictures of all the options here. It'll be lunch, dinner and take-out in the early going. An Asian tapas and cocktail roll-out is planned for summer. [EaterWire]
