PoP Mini and Menu Preview – Beau Thai

Since this photo was taken, a polished concrete countertop now adorns the half wall you see.

Earlier in the week I mentioned that Beau Thai a new restaurant will be opening up at the corner of R and New Jersey Ave, NW. At first we thought takeout would open Monday, then Thursday, now I’m hearing on twitter and elsewhere that it is now looking like a Friday opening. But I was able to get my hands on a menu which you can see in a pdf below:


If you can’t open the PDF and have a magnifying glass:

And here’s a bit more info from a Shaw resident working with the new restaurant:

“Beau Thai will initially operate as a fast food establishment due to zoning restrictions. Earlier this year, we submitted an application for a special exception to change the existing nonconforming use (fast food) into another nonconforming use (restaurant). Last month, ANC2C voted unanimously in favor of supporting our application, as did the Convention Center Community Association. We have a hearing before the Board of Zoning Adjustment on September 21, 2010 about our application. If all continues to go well, Beau Thai will be able to operate as a sit down restaurant soon thereafter.

I have sampled many of the items on the menu; the food is FANTASTIC! It’s so fresh, tasty, and authentic. Additionally, the space is really beautiful, with exposed brick walls, crystal pendant lights, dark hardwood floors, etc. As a Shaw resident myself, I can say Beau Thai will be a true asset for the neighborhood and I’m very excited about its opening!”
