From tacos to thai on Third Avenue

Been keeping my eye on 58 Third Ave. near 11th Street, former home to the worst Taco Bell in America.* Seems as if the spot was vacant for eons.



I thought it was that inexpensive "for rent" sign with the handwritten phone number that made it look El Cheapo. What, you throwing a garage sale or do you want to do some business? Then TWO new signs were added!



Anyway! Those signs must have done the trick! The plywood went up last fall...now something called Thai Bodhi Tree is coming to this spot.



They'll be going before the CB3 SLA & DCA Licensing Committee
Monday for a beer and wine permit.

* blanket statement.

P.S. Bodhi? Like Patrick Swayzeeee in Point Break?

I'm with you! I was hoping for something a little more interesting...or useful.

Seriously, enough with the Thai grub. Speaking of, did anyone notice that mini-Thai place TONG that opened only weeks ago on E.13th has already been gobbled up by the re-located Spice?

Wow, that place wasn't tong for this earth.

Sorry! Forgive me. But seriously, that's amazing how quickly Tong flamed out...it just opened in August.
