My Thai


When My Thai was displaced due to a fire in 2010, we wondered if the Mount Vernon restaurant would ever return. Well, it’s back but in a very different form and a different place. Located in the spot formerly occupied by Lemongrass, My Thai’s new Harbor East home is far larger and sophisticated than its previous incarnation. The front bar area is like a low-key Bangkok nightclub with its techno music soundtrack, moody lighting and post-industrial exposed pipes. Diners can watch cooks prepare food at the open “grill bar,” which features a separate menu of more interesting sounding dishes than those on the regular menu: flash-fried chicken livers with baby bok choy; grilled beef tongue with spicy mango salad; a noodle bowl with roasted duck and Chinese broccoli. For lunch, we recommend sitting in the brighter-lit second dining room with its long blond-wood communal tables. Either way, it’s good to see the return of an old friend. Open for lunch and dinner daily. 1300 Bank St., 410-327-0023,
