Sweet Rice Is Replacing Chow Thai Cafe in Charlestown
A Charlestown restaurant that appears to have been closed for awhile is being replaced by another dining spot, and it looks like one of the people involved with it comes from an Arlington eatery.
According to a Twitter post from @alexeweaver of BostInno, Chow Thai Cafe on Main Street has a sign in the window saying that Sweet Rice is taking over the space. A check on the latter indicates (via Bizapedia) that the registered agent on file for business is Pichai Chairatthanawanit, who had been involved with Thai Moon on Mass. Ave. in Arlington. (The other two people behind Sweet Rice are Jarthuront Pholsamak from Falls, NY, Monson Theerapanont from Malden.) It is not known when Sweet Rice may open (and their website is not running yet); as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
Chow Thai Cafe was a dining spot that our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) had featured as an under-the-radar place to go to for Thai food. The review can be found at this link:
The address for Chow Thai Cafe (and the new Sweet Rice) is 187 Main Street, Charlestown, MA, 02129. The website for Sweet Rice will be at http://www.sweetriceboston.com/
[April 11 update: Eater Boston mentions that Sweet Rice is now open, and that it features both Thai food and sushi.]
