The upmarket-restaurant space next to the Regal theater in Edgmont Square Shopping Center in Newtown Square has not exactly had the greatest track record.
Roux 3, a polished New American with downtown price tags, hung in for six years. Then came the real estate bust.
Win and Sutida Somboonsong - who own a bunch of Thai and other Asian restaurants in the western burbs - came in with a short-lived steakhouse, Parker's Prime. Then the couple arranged a deal with Sang Kee's Michael Chow to brand the location as a Sang Kee. That takes us to September 2012, when they reconceptualized yet again to Azie Southeast - borrowing the name of their restaurants in Media and Villanova.
Azie Southeast didn't even make it three months. (Its closing was noted today on a Patch site.)
