Chelsea Thai, a longtime favorite in that neighborhood, opened in its new home at 192 First Ave. between 11th Street and 12th Street back on Friday.

Founder-chef Saruj Nimkarn (pictured above) relocated here after 21 years in the Chelsea Market. (He closed that space in January.)

This is great news for our neighborhood, especially since East Village Thai closed last month. I was a loyal patron of Chelsea Thai for a number of years in the Chelsea Market until they closed. Its a great little shop where not only can you purchase yummy Thai food, you can also buy a variety of food goods such as curry pasta, fish sauce, noodles, and so forth. Can't wait see the new place. Welcome to the hood!

It's closed. Anyone knows why?
