Flowers, food, feet, & more
In early April, three of the four No Thai! partners were sprawled on chairs in their newest No Thai! on Plymouth Road in the Courtyard Shops, waiting for a building inspec-tion, and looking like a tableau of slacker indolence. Except that they're opening their third restaurant in about as many years, so at least someone here must be a Type A, though it's hard to say who. Victor Kim, who handles IT and accounting, was fiddling with his laptop. Noerung Hang, head chef, wandered outside for a cigarette. Jeff Cho, human resources and scheduling, laconically volunteered to handle the unexpected drop-in Marketplace Changes interview. Fourth partner Brian Kim (no relation to Victor), who handles "aesthetics, branding, and logo," wasn't there, but his contribution was felt in the paint color, a somehow simultaneously soothing and energizing light green called "celery bunch."
Cho confirmed that they were pretty calm about opening their third restaurant. There won't be any menu changes: they knocked out their concise menu of Thai fast food when they opened the first restaurant on South University and haven't seen any reason to change it.
