New Thai Bistro, Leelawadee, Moving into Mango/Remixed Space

First, there was Mango. Then, there was Remixed, then there was Mango/Remixed Thai Brasserie. Now, there'll be Leelawadee, moving into the space on Seventh between Lincoln and St. John's that's been empty since Mango/Remixed closed up shop about a month ago.

While there isn't much information forthcoming, there are two things I know for sure: It will serve Thai food, and is under new ownership.

While there's certainly an abundance of Thai food in the neighborhood, most of it is so-so. The "Thai Bistro" will be open by the end of the week, so we should know soon whether or not this one will stand out from the pack.

Yes, an abundance of Thai places in the Slope. Informal survey: which is your favorite? which is most "authentic"?, which is most creative?

Mee Thai is really the most authentic and the most delicious. Their drunken noodle rank with the best places in Queens.

Spice is the worst, that new place on 5th Avenue near 9th Street is 2nd worst and Song is 3rd worst.

Born Thai (technically in Prospect Heights) and Nahm Kitchen are okay but not nearly as good as Mee Thai.

That being said, if this place is good to great, it may last. I like the name. It's the name of a hotel in Phuket, Thailand too.

Born and Sky Ice are my favorites. That being said, it's a been long time since thai in this neighborhood blew me away.

This will be another delivery option to replace the old one, which was as mediocre an option as any other.

Agreed...there's no stellar Thai, unfortunately. I was doing delivery from Song, mainly because it was cheap and it scratched the itch. That was until i got a roach in my mango salad =( THAT SUCKED. I just can't bring myself to go back now.

Since I'm on 9th street, i defer to Watana for now (Beet can suck it) but I wish we had one place closer to the South side that really hit home.

The issue for me Song is that, while I've never had anything bad happen to me there, and have actually liked what I've eaten every time, I've heard enough bad stories as to roaches/plastic/Republicans found in their food that I've left them for dead. Maybe I should just stop reading blogs? :)

I forgot about Sky Ice. Okay they are my favorite even more than Mee Thai but for some reason I always forget about them!

Sai Thai (newish one on 5th Ave near 9th, I think) has a fantastic red curry and solid basil stir fry, plus some good apps. This is the spiciest thai I've had so far in NYC, but I've mostly eaten it in Brooklyn.

Let's not debate the merits of this Thai spot or that Thai spot. Instead let's point out, once again (well, once again for me) that there are no less than 10 Thai spots of varying degrees of quality within a half mile radius. And how many yummy, Mission style burrito joints? Zero. How many fine burger bars and burger bistros and bastions of the bison burger are there in that half mile? A dozen perhaps. Celebrators of Sushi? Another dozen. Place where a fella like me can go and get a big, great burrito and then top it with their generous salsa bar, with a seperae bucket of fresh cilantro and onions, and pickled hole jalapeños and carrots? Again, zero. Why, I wonder has our God forsaken us here in Park Slope? I weep for us, one and all.
