Three new Thai places are capitalizing on the fortuitous 11-11-11 action, starting with the much-awaited opening of ~LERS ROS HAYES~. The Hayes Valley location has comfortable seating, and while the food menu is basically the same, there will be an emphasis on the wine program. Hours will be 10am-11pm. 307 Hayes St. at Franklin, 415-874-9661.
Meanwhile, in the Mission, PorPhol (Paul) Meeriyagerd is opening ~HOUSE 530~. As mentioned previously in tablehopper, his parents are behind Thai House Express—while the menu will include some of the Thai favorites served by his parents at THE, there will also be some California influence and local ingredients. The 80-seat restaurant will offer bar seating and a modern look; takeout will be available. Hours are Sun-Thu 5pm-11am, Fri-Sat 5pm-12am. 530 Valencia St. at 16th St.
