Bye Bye, Pad Thai

For years I wondered how the Virginia Highlands supported so many Thai restaurants. In addition to Pad Thai, a quick thought brings

  • Surin
  • Panita Thai Kitchen
  • Harry and Son’s
  • Ma-Li

to mind, all exisiting within a few miles of one another.

I guess this trend is reversing. Last night on my way out of George’s Bar to go running I noticed that Pad Thai looked empty and that there was a notice posted on its door. The noticed informed all who read it that Pad Thai had closed its doors forever on April 30th, 2006.

    Hmm, so many emotions overcome me when thinking of my first whiff of peanuts over noodles in the Surin of Thailand in VH. I loved feeling like a Thai “insider” having had something none of my friends knew about in a great area of town. That was six years ago. It IS time for VH to step it up.

    This city is changing rapidly and cute little Thai restaurants, unless its Nan, just don’t have that big city chic feel Atlanta is now going for. Everyone’s in Atlantic Station or other areas of midtown. I love VH still though because they are still going for what works for their area…just look at the opening of Bella Cucina. Perfecto!
