According to Now Magazine:
Hot on the heels of Sukhothai, Sabai Sabai and her former Khao San Road, Nuit Regular looks set to launch a fifth (!) Thai resto later this year. Word has it the centrally located spot will focus on takeout and delivery, though details are still being nailed down.
“We’re definitely going to do something new and challenging,” says partner/hubby Jeff. “Nuit’s looking to totally outdo herself.”
ETA: late fall
From what I understand, and correct me if I'm wrong someone in the know, but they don't own Sukhothai, Jeff's parents do? And they didn't own Khao San Road, obviously. And similar situation with Sabai Sabai?
Because yeah if so, I hope they own the new joint lock/stock. I'll be getting most of my Thai from there. They deserve to make lots of money feeding us.
Does anyone know what the story was with Khao San Road and how they got pushed out? Were they only part owners with a buy-sell agreement that the other partner triggered? Did they not own any of it?
I know that they leaving was a result of some disagreement (about what no one seems to know), but just wonder what the ownership structure was and how they were forced out. I've been eating their food since they first opened Sukhothai on Parliament.
I'm not sure which restaurant kitchen's they "control" but if gets beyond 2, the food will suffer. Superstar chefs struggle with multiple restaurants in a city, not sure how 2 well intentioned individuals will succeed. I wish them the best of luck, I do love Nuit's cooking/recipes.
