First things first: Here’s the new location of Morningside Thai. Hoping to open June 22, says owner Ying Roberts, the no-longer-on-Morningside, no-longer-eponymous restaurant can be found at 2473 S. Braeswood Blvd., inside the Kirby Glen Retail Center, north of OST, right where the South Main neighborhood bumps into University Place. Got that? Of course, the Braeswood address might be a tad misleading in this case, since the restaurant actually faces Kirby Dr.
And the restaurant’s old spot just off W. Holcombe Blvd. on Morningside, tabbed for demo at the end of April, is looking a little bald, as of this morning. Owners Ying and Jim Roberts suspect that these rectangular frames have the look of townhomes. If so, they’ll cozy right up to that satellite dish and those teeny rear windows of the Roadway Inn and Suites.
Here was the restaurant, before the demo:
