A Thai bonanza

On the heels of the new Sawatdee comes Jasmine Rice.

A Thai bonanza

Tom Jamavan, formerly part of the triumvirate at Trio in Fairmount, is behind a Thai BYO now being hammered out at 306 S. 16th St., in the longtime home of Warsaw Cafe.

Jamavan says he's doing extensive work and plans to open Jasmine Rice in the second half of September.

It's a veritable Thai-fest in the 'hood, as it follows the new Sawatdee at 15th and South Streets.

His ex-partners are also putting together a Mexi-Cali BYOB called Isabel at 2601 Parkway.
