Now, this is a little teaser, but I thought you’d like a bite of some good news, especially if you live in Dogpatch or Potrero Hill. It ends up Pim Techamuanvivit (who lives in the neighborhood) is going to be taking over the Piccino team’s fast-casual Noon All Day space, which closed at the beginning of the stay-at-home order and sadly won’t be reopening. Pim will be opening a pared-down version of KIN KHAO, her Michelin-starred Thai restaurant, which is temporarily closed at its Union Square location—that neighborhood is pretty desolate at the moment. Kin Khao Dogpatch will just be taking over Noon’s space (and lease) for a year—Kin Khao received a PPP loan, and Pim is happy she can keep a number of folks on her team employed at this new location.
Guests will be able to sit at tables on the plaza and enjoy their food, but there won’t be table service—they will order at a counter and have their food brought to them in disposable containers, fast-casual style. (The staff will clear and clean the tables when guests are finished.)
Stand by for updates from me on the menu (although you can expect the famed wings, khao soi, and khao yum!) and timing and other details, but it’s happening soon. 690 Indiana St. at 19th St.
