For awhile there really was no Thai in the Kerrytown area, with both No Thai! and Siam Cuisine shuttered for remodels. A fresh, newly configured No Thai! reopened August 29. “It’s a little more efficient,” said the order taker. “Huh, really? I liked the old way,” muttered a customer. At any rate, it is open, with a fresh facade and the same menu.

Less clear is the fate of Siam Cuisine. Though a sign on the door claims it’s being remodeled, “No one has been there since June” either cooking or remodeling, says Martin Contreras, who with his longtime partner and newlywed husband Keith Orr owns the Aut Bar and Common Language Books next door.

No Thai! 226 N. Fourth Ave., 213-0808. Mon.-Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Sun. noon-11 p.m.
