Openings and Closings

Now open: Swing Thai in the Jet Hotel

Swing Thai started serving yesterday in the Jet Hotel, 1612 Wazee Street. This fourth location of the homegrown chain took over the space left open when XO closed ten weeks ago.

To make sure that Swing Thai doesn't suffer the same fate, Buddhist monks will perform a blessing at the restaurant on Monday morning.
