Coming to 425 I St. NW
We are thrilled to announce that Baan Siam, from the team behind DC-favorite Baan Thai, will launch in Mount Vernon Triangle in early spring of 2020. On December 31st we completed our last service, and our lease, at our beloved 14th Street Baan Thai. And we're getting ready for Baan Siam to be "same same but different" at 425 I Street NW.
Baan Siam will have some of your all-time favorite dishes from the northern-style Baan Thai, new explorations of specialties from across Thailand, and seasonal menus. As fans of Baan Thai know and love, we’ll be focused on authentic Thai cuisine with ingredients and recipes from Thailand - and with plenty of spice.
The new space will be a significant expansion for the team, and we are excited for the opportunities it offers to explore new and exciting dishes for you. We’ve started retrofitting the kitchen, which is a thousand square feet larger than the Baan Thai kitchen, and will have new equipment like a high-power wok station and a wood-fired oven. We’ll have a wrap-around patio, over 150 seats inside, a private dining room, and twenty beers on tap at the expanded bar. And with an open kitchen, you can watch the magic happen.
The entire Baan Thai team, coming with us for the move to Baan Siam, is hard at work. Chef Jeeraporn (P'Boom) Poksubthong will be leading the kitchen, Tom Healy will helm the bar, and Vena Doungchan will keep the floor humming. We’ve started perfecting dishes in Chef’s test kitchen, and can report that - unsurprisingly - they are delicious.
We want to thank all our Baan Thai fans, and we can’t wait to welcome you to Baan Siam.
