Plum Bistro, a 44-seat restaurant featuring Vietnamese cuisine, is expected to open soon in the former Trends Jewelers spot at 94 Main St. Owner Susan Nguyen of Dorchester was born in South Vietnam, and escaped from the country with an uncle in 1987. “I hope to be a part of the community,” Nguyen said in an interview, adding that she was attracted to the town by the diversity of its residents. The Town Council approved her application for a restaurant license this month, and she hopes to open by the end of the month or in early January. She said she may apply later for a license to sell alcohol.
