Swamplot’s anonymous tunnel correspondent sends the following deep-Downtown restaurant updates (and a few other subterranean readers send along photos to illustrate):
The location formerly occupied by Prince’s at 930 Main St., [beneath the] McKinney Place Garage (unoccupied since early March) will soon be home to Time for Thai, whose sign says that they are an offshoot of Thai Cottage:
Time for Thai’s first location in the Texas Medical Center Commons at 6550 Bertner Ave. opened in 2014, with another more recent outpost at the food court at 601 Jefferson; the lunch-only spot serves a shorter menu than its parent operation. Thai Cottage itself currently holds down 8 locations between the Woodlands and Webster, with a 9th spot in Corpus Christi.
Another tunnel newcomer on its way may offer some Mediterranean competition:
The High Tower Deli at 914 Main St. (Commerce Towers) closed at the end of June, and will soon be home to Arabella Mediterranean Cuisine. It should be noted that this location is around the corner from the tunnel Dimassi’s.
