You may remember Tai Shan, but then again, you may not. The short-lived Thai restaurant at 2224 Avenue U (and East 23rd Street) closed several months back before most people knew it even existed.
Well, fellow Thai lovers, rejoice! Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, only way less spectacular, Tai Yuan has recently opened on the location. With a menu of both Thai and Chinese favorites, the “Aisian” restaurant is aiming for the take-out crowd. We haven’t tried it yet, but we’d love to know if their Thai cuisine is any better than their spelling.
