Apparently a new Thai restaurant (yes, another one) is set to open in the recently-shuttered Caffe Bella Venezia on Post & Jones — named iThai. We never ate there mainly because the burgers from Pearl’s next door always had a bigger draw and touristic Venice paintings for a decor don’t do much for us.
Tender sources tell us they had good food, but were extremely slow since they made everything to order. We have no idea if the new place is going to be any good, or simply catering to the tourists/AoA crowd in the area (along the lines of Pick me Up Pizza a few doors down). We just know what the wallpaper promises: “Bangkok street food”. But we have to give them props for the name, which is oh so clever, not overdone, or San Francisco techie at all… More details soon.
