On Clinton Street, ‘Thailicious’ Tries Where Many Others Failed
It’s been two years since a restaurant – or any tenant, for that matter – has held down retail at 71 Clinton Street. Now, another…
The latest entrant to make a go of it here is Thailicious, the three-year-old Chinatown import (Baxter Street). Just down the block from popular local haunt, One More Thai, this place aims to serve “authentic Thai dishes made from family recipes.”
So far, there is no liquor license to speak of, and an opening date is not yet announced. However, we did spy a look inside.
Perennially hexed is 71 Clinton Street. Every restaurant in this particular space since the eviction of Fat Hippo nine years ago was short-lived and met equal fate – Patate Fellow (closed May 2011), Hachember (closed February 2012), Itazakaya Dodom Pa (closed 2013), Seoul Chicken (closed July 2015), and The WhaLES (closed August 2017).
Thailicious, which opened at 75 Baxter Street in 2016, is next to try and buck this trend.
