Beau Thai Now Open in New Space at 7th and P St, NW

Via Beau Thai’s facebook page: “The dining room of our new restaurant at 7th and P Streets, NW! Designed by Foundry Architects”

Beau Thai opened their new Shaw location on December 26th. On the 23rd they wrote:

“Today is Beau Thai’s LAST DAY at New Jersey and R! Stop by for some nostalgia and a meal!

After tonight’s dinner service, we will close this location to move Beau Thai Shaw to a fantastic new space just a couple blocks away at 7th and P Streets. We will open in the gorgeous bigger new location Friday, December 26, at 11 am.

It’s been an amazing four-plus years at 1700 New Jersey Avenue. While we’ve outgrown the building, it will always hold fond memories for us: It’s where restaurant owning dreams came true, community gathered, celebrations occurred, and friends and family met on countless occasions. Thanks for a great run here, and ‪#‎GetExcited‬ for an even more amazing new chapter on 7th Street.

Stay tuned for an announcement in January about the fantastic new restaurant taking Beau Thai’s place at New Jersey and R later this winter.”

Ed. Note: Back in July we heard some scuttlebutt that a noodle house would be taking over the old location, stay tuned.

  • Congrats on the new space, Beau Thai. The neighborhood just isn’t the same without you! (sniff)

  • Went last week. Drinks were great, food was good, service was slow. Hopefully they’ll figure out the new space and speed things up a bit.

  • The place in Mt. P was some of the best casual (i.e. non fixed fixed menu) Thai in the city.

  • I hope they hurry up with that noodle joint in their old place. I miss them already.

  • We had those same chairs in my high school.

  • Dear Beau Thai owners, (you two white guys),

    Your curry is not curry, it is soup. your food is bland, your beer is too cold.

    Please sort this mess out asap.

    For a real curry go to the little place in the verizon center, this is the closest to a real curry you will get in DC.

    • Pnadnog,

      Beau Thai isn’t owned by (just) two white guys — the founder, who’s also an owner and the force behind our kitchens, is Aschara Vigsittaboot. She’s from Thailand and has been in the restaurant biz for a long time.

      Sorry you’re not a fan of our curry! We actually take great pride in our curries — their flavor, their authenticity, their quality of ingredients, , their presentation, etc. We make our curry pastes from scratch — which is something that most Thai restaurants — even many restaurants back in Thailand — don’t take the care to do (many restaurants start with canned curry pastes instead of raw ingredients).

      Thanks for the coverage, Prince of Petworth! We’re SO excited about our new place at 7th and P Streets and our offerings here! We have a fantastic, huge bar, with 7 local beers on draught and many others in cans/bottles, specialty cocktails, wines, sakes and more. Our new menu features a few new dishes, such as a fried whole fish and larb ped. Our new space is cozy and modern. And we could go on and on!

      It generally takes about a month or so for us to work out all the kinks of a new restaurant, and we’re so thankful for our customers’ patience as our staff learns the menu and how to use the new digs. With each day, we’re getting our sea legs and seeking ways to improve.

      Hope to see y’all here soon!

      The Beau Thai Team
