After a brief soft opening period, I-Thai is ready to officially open to the public tomorrow in Georgetown. Here's what diners need to know:
· Those who used to frequent Garrett's, the longtime former tenant, may recognize some aspects of the space, such as the colonial interior and the original fireplace. There are new touches, though, such as a painting meant to depict village life in Thailand villages, and a banana leaf hand-painted wall.
· The menu is meant to represent all four regional cuisines within Thailand: Northern, Northeastern, Central and Southern, with an emphasis on traditional dishes. There is also a sushi bar and full sushi menu.
· This is the third restaurant from the owners, who also own an I-Thai in Tysons Corner and Thai Deelish in Ashburn. The newest restaurant is meant to be the most formal.
· The restaurant space stretches over two floors, with a private dining area for business meetings and receptions.
