Call it serendipity. One evening back in the early 80’s, I wandered into a Thai restaurant by chance. Having Never sampled the cuisine of Thailand before, I was curious to try different dishes. By the end of the evening, I’d fallen in love with the exotic tastes, and flavorful spices of this exciting new food.
I soon became a regular at the restaurant, and continued to explore many others. But as I sat at a table one night, surrounded by walls empty of artwork, with no wine list to peruse and a waiter who didn’t understand me, I realized that as much as I loved Thai food, I was less enchanted with most Thai restaurants. Such wonderful cuisine deserved a better setting. That’s when I began imagining how I could make the Thai dining experience more enjoyable and inviting. A short time later, as I pondered a career change I decided to pursue my dream.
