My Thai, originally located in Mount Vernon's Park Plaza building, has reopened in The Tack Factory at 1300 Bank St.
The new My Thai occupies the nearly 6,000-square-foot space formerly held by another Thai restaurant, Lemongrass, and features exposed brick, a 40-foot bar, dark woods, and a combination of high top communal tables and traditional seating. The restaurant is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, until midnight on Friday and Saturday.
Developed by the husband-and-wife team of Brad and Varattaya "Pui" Wales and Jirat Suphrom-In, the original Charles Street restaurant, along with Donna's and Indigma, was destroyed by a fire in December 2010.
The menu of traditional Thai dishes will be supplemented, Wales says, with "culinary surprises," available as occasional specials, featuring liver, brain and silkworm.
