Funky Thai has been shuttered for a couple of weeks, which isn’t exactly a shocker. Despite its entrepreneurial spirit (diners got three free tater tots every time they surrendered their dignity by saying the words “all tongue-tied for three free tasty Thai tater tots!!”), the place spent its first year of operation depressingly empty, in so far as a restaurant with a fluorescent-green-and-purple color scheme and an affinity for smiley faces can be depressing. A phone message had them back from Thanksgiving vacation on November 27, but here we are a week later and still a padlock instead of pad Thai. Could this be the end of the latest incarnation of the spot that was Funky Broome and then briefly Jazzi Wok? And if so, what will replace it, Swingin’ Szechuan?
