Anyone know what's up with the Planet Thailand that's slated to open up across the street from Erawan on Bell Blvd? Husband and I went past last night after a late OB appt hoping for a meal, but it hadn't officially been open yet. The renovation had been done and the signage was up, but it was closed. I'd imagine this is a branch of the Brooklyn place?
Does anyone know anything about it? I know the Erawan owners Paul and Oi have about eight restaurants in their Thai empire but don't recall them mentioning Planet Thai. Last I had heard they were thinking of opening a Thai/Italian fusion place with the owners of Pappazio (across the street) in the space that once housed the movie theater on the corner. Didn't seem to pan out as a bank is now occupies the lot.
I'm curius about this. What with the tiny Vietnamese/Thai Chau's that opened up on Francis Lewis two weeks ago this would be the third Thai place in Bayside....
