Earlier this week we ran a story about True Thai, reporting that a sign was posted at the restaurant stating that it would be re-opening.
In response to the article, reader Kim pointed us to a post by the Seward Civic and Commerce Association, that stated:
“You’ve probably heard by now that True Thai, which has been a mainstay of the Seward neighborhood for over ten years, has closed its doors. Financial and legal issues, some of which have been discussed in the press over the past month or so, resulted in the business deciding to shut down their Franklin Avenue operation. Significant interest in the space from other restaurants has already started to surface, but if you know of any restauranteurs who would be interested in taking up the mantel of operating at the corner of 27th and Franklin, you can refer them to Nancy@Redesigninc.org or to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Redesign’s executive director Brian Miller confirmed that True Thai would not be re-opening at the Franklin location. He stated that Redesign plans to renovate the space and lease it to a different restaurant. He was not able to say whether True Thai would be opening at a new location.
A call to the restaurant owners has not yet been returned. We’ll update when more information becomes available.
