☞ SHOP: Closing and Opening on St. Nicholas

The Thai takeout in the laundromat at St. Nicholas Avenue and 148th Street was quite a sensation when it opened a year ago but now it appears to have closed down for good. Folks that tried out Tri Thai Cuisine had good things to say about but many did not agree with it being in the front end of the laundry establishment.  A reader mentioned that the woman running the operations appears to have gone away for vacation and never returned.  Read more about Tri Thai from our original post: LINK

As far as openings go, Crain's reports that the next door commercial space by the Thai takeout (at far right of photo) has secured a lease for another wine shop on the Sugar Hill section of West Harlem.  A wine seller opened at 704 St. Nicholas a month ago and a the new store at 752 St. Nicholas will now house the Harlem Wine Gallery at the formerly vacant 1,300-square-foot space. The lease was just signed and a Holiday opening has been planned along with exhibits from local artists as part of the interior: LINK


  1. I was hoping Tri Thai would open again - or even take over the space next door and open a legit sit down restaurant. I think the wine store sounds like it will be nice, but maybe it's too close to the one b/t 145th and 146th?

  2. Me too , I moved near there this summer and would peak in to see if it was coming back...Folks told me I should try it..Now it is too late..I wonder what happened ,, The restaurant business is SOOOOO difficult..
