It was just yesterday that Time Out released the first details about an item from Next’s upcoming Thai menu. Though the nonalcoholic drink may or may not actually make the cut, it was fascinating to get a glimpse of what was coming up. But just a few hours later, Steve Dolinsky one-upped the magazine by posting a picture of the first confirmed dish. It’s a version of a tom yum soup, and Dolinsky declared that it was, “very tasty.” Isn’t that beautiful? Dolinsky also had some more details about Next’s Thai transformation.
He tweeted that Grant Achatz “might” have the menu progress from street snacks served on newspapers to elegant dishes presented on silk table runners. Also, he confirmed that the restaurant is prepared to make the jump to the new menu on July 8. Okay, so we are officially excited about this.
