Washington, DC

via Eventbrite’s Thamee Supper Club & Thingyan Celebration

Thanks to all who passed on word from Washingtonian:

“The team behind Burmese bodega Toli Moli has been using its tiny Union Market food hall stall to introduce DC to the wonders of falooda (a parfait-like dessert with basil seeds, ice cream, and flavored gelatin) and mohinga (catfish noodle curry). Now, they’re hoping to give Burmese cuisine an even bigger platform with a sit-down restaurant called Thamee, meaning “daughter.” It will replace Sally’s Middle Name, which closes on H Street Northeast on March 31.”

From Eventbrite:

“welcome to toli moli‘s newest sister restaurant, thamee!

in anticipation of the grand opening of thamee, a full-service anglo-burmese restaurant on h street northeast in washington, dc serving elevated presentations of street food and home-style meals from burma, we are pleased to welcome you into our new restaurant home for a series of pre-opening supper clubs.

meaning “daughter” in burmese, thamee will be the second culinary concept by the mother-daughter duo behind the critically acclaimed toli moli, jocelyn law-yone and simone jacobson, along with business partner eric wang, and their first opportunity to offer guests a sit-down dining experience featuring food from chef jocelyn’s home country. incorporating their shared passions for art, culture, hospitality, and intergenerational placemaking, the toli moli/thamee team will build upon their successes pioneering the next generation of burmese culinary traditions in our nation’s capital.

join us for a thingyan (burmese new year) celebration featuring an intimate, multi-course dinner and dessert prepared by chef jocelyn law-yone before thamee opens to the public.
