According to Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl over at Minnesota Monthly, the people behind Chiang Mai Thai are set to open a new pan-asian restaurant in the Times space, across the street from Nye’s in Nordeast. More importantly, the beer selection is suposed to be good, featuring a “big craft-beer list (not unlike the one at St. Paul’s Muddy Pig).”
If this holds true, you won’t find me complaining. It appears as if the place is slated for a mid-September opening. Surely more information will be forthcoming… that is, of course, assuming that the beer selection is awesome.
I’ve been to this restaurant once, and I’m going again tonight. The service last time was amazing! They’ve got great food and a really cool atmosphere (I like the ceiling fans!). Last time my friend and I had the sweet potato fries (which come with a spicy ketchup), and we sampled all of the satays. The walleye satay was so good, and each satay came out with a different sauce which was really cool… and they’re cheap! We shared the Pad Lao and Green Curry. They were great. A lot better than what you get at Sawatdee. But the cool thing is that Ginger Hop is a restaurant where you can still get a burger, and a great sandwich too! Plus they have a large enough beer selection to please any beer lover! Can’t wait to go again tonight… I think I’m going to have a burger!
