Madam Mam's Westgate now Sap's? What's going on here?

Noticed tonight as we were driving by that the MM signage is all still up, but there's a big banner hanging over the patio that says "SAP'S". A peek inside looked like a new interior. Does anyone know what's going on here?

  1. Interesting.
    Sap and Mam are the husband and wife team behind the restaurants, but I have no idea what the name change signifies.

      I heard a rumor of divorce from a nearby restaurant. They said she picked the north one and he picked the south???

        So it's a Dan's/Fran's thing? Who gets the central one, I wonder. That south location is always jamming. Hope it stays just as great. I've recently discovered the Nuer Ob, which is amazing. I call it Thai carne guisada. Last time the south location was so busy that we ordered from Anderson, and they forgot some stuff (like the hot sauce that was integral to my dish).

    2. Divorice is final and Sap will keep the Westgate location and Mam will keep the Northcross. Menus are supposed to stay the same but Sap is going to focus on Fine Thai dining.
