The utterly nonlamented Saigon Kitchen at S.E. 38th and Division is dead. Yay! As a resident of the nabe, I always took that place as a personal affront -- so near, and yet so bad. It has been replaced by a Thai restaurant of which the name is, I think, "Authentic Thai Cuisine" (cringe). Whether this is its actual name or just its claim, one would think its chances of being any good a bit dismal. But if it just does one or two things right, it would be welcome. (Some nights, gee, I dunno, I just don't feel like standing outside Pok Pok for 45". Call me crazy.) I console myself with the notion that it cannot be worse than what it replaced. I haven't been yet. . .and just wonder if anyone has; and, if so, what they have to say about it?
