Thai Teak, the big green florist and imported housewares store across from Urth Cafe on Main Street Santa Monica, has plans to add a tiny restaurant outpost inside of its store space. An owner confirms the plan is to sell vegan Thai dishes along the lines of meat-free curries and dishes based around tofu. The restaurant might stick to a takeout-only policy, though the decision is still up-in-the-air. Right now, licenses are still pending approval from the city and an opening could be as many as two months away. Hopefully, Thai Teak is tapping into the new expedited system and will have the right to serve its take on Thai before summer’s end. Stay tuned!
