From a press release:

“The principals behind the award-winning Beau Thai restaurants of the Shaw and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods of Washington, DC, announced their plans to open a unique new Thai restaurant at 1700 New Jersey Avenue, NW. The new concept will be known as BKK Cookshop (BKK is the airport code for Bangkok) and will showcase international influences on Thai cooking.

Executive chef and owner Aschara Vigsittaboot has spent the past two years planning BKK’s menu. She has traveled to Thailand on several occasions to determine and refine the offerings. Among the dishes planned for the menu include house-made Chinese steamed buns, pomelo salad, grilled meatballs, Thai style chicken wings and several rice and noodle dishes. A handful of made-from-scratch sauces will be a stand-out accompaniment to meals at BKK. (more…)
