So what’s going on at the new Thai restaurant across the street from Urth on Main in Santa Monica? That sign in the window announcing the Thai trinkets store’s impending conversion to a vegan restaurant has been up for quite a while. Well, according to Latree the owner, the restaurant has been postponed due to a conflict with the city of Santa Monica. It appears that building is lacking a proper cover for its electrical panel. While this doesn’t sound like a giant problem, the only company that manufactured the covers is long out of business. A makeshift cover was installed and this is the reason the city won’t grant the permit. Latree has been very patient and has already done much of the conversion, but she doesn’t expect any action from the city until later this year. Her future menu lists a variety of noodles, curries, appetizers, and fried rice made with fresh, healthy ingredients.
