      Nope, a different spot all together.

      I think it is going in the old mexican place on Wellington (Hernando's?).... Not far from the Pizza Pizza (or, should I say former Pizza Pizza because I read that was/is changing into a The Works burger spot.

      This one would be Sukhothai, Nuit wouldn't be involved in it. I am still not 100% on her involvement with the other one besides designing the menu

      1. re: ylsf

        The GridTO just published an article confirming the rumour.

        "Cabbagetown Thai restaurant Sukho Thai (274 Parliament St., at Dundas) is opening a larger branch at 52A Wellington St. E. (at Church) in the Habaneros space. A sandwich board outside the Mexican restaurant is currently counting down the days until it closes (Oct. 27). In November, Sukho Thai will take over and spruce up the 80-seat restaurant before (hopefully) opening in the beginning of December.

        “It’ll be the same menu and name,” says Myrna Regular, wife of Sukho Thai owner Vicente. “It’ll be the exact same concept and we’ll have a liquor licence.”—Karon Liu"

    2. so i've seen that the new sukhothai location at 52 wellington st e. is now open. anyone been yet? how's the food?

        Some friends have gone and posted positive things about it on Twitter. I haven' t been myself yet.

        BTW, I think I read that the original one is temporarily closed down while they are launching the new location... Not sure until when.

        1. re: ylsf

          The original location at Dundas/Parliament will be closed until Mid January.

      2. Sabai Sabai (owned by sukhothai's daughter-in-law and original chef at SukhoThai chef Nuit Regular has also opened at Dundas/Church). I went there last week. Just as good!
