Are you freaking kidding me? Another Thai place opens in Cobble Hill/ Carroll Gardens.

Looks like Ghang Thai has taken over the space previously occupied by Miriam. The good news? It's a beautifully designed space with a nice garden. Very sleek.

The bad news? It's a Thai restaurant in a neighborhood already bursting with them. (In a 1 mile radius, there's lemongrass, joya, nine-d, ghang, and at least 2 others whose names escape me)

I'm glad to see one less empty storefront on Court, but why? Ghang already has an outpost less than 3 blocks away on Smith, and I can say with absolute certainty that the LAST thing this neighborhood needed was another sorry excuse for Thai food.

Of the bunch in the neighborhood, I like Nine-D the best, but as with Indian and Chinese, you have to go elsewhere if you want to eat the good stuff.
