Leigh – Callahan join forces

Leigh – Callahan join forces

Early in 2004, Robin Leigh and partners Michael Callahan, Jean-Marc Houmard and Huy Chi Lee (each already known for such landmark establishments as Indochine, BondSt, Republic and Town) joined forces to bring to New York a world-class culinary paean to Thai cuisine.They assembled a stellar team: Rockwell Group principal Diego Granda gave the room its rich decor, Paris based budding Thai fashion designer Chomwan Weeraworawit made the already photogenic staff even more camera-worthy, London based Thai designer and director Opas Chantkam created the restaurant’s iconography, and Feng Shui master Patrick Wong helped create a zen mood and flow to match the sublime décor.

The crowning jewel of the creation was Chef Ian Chalermkittichai who was lured away from the rarified world of the Four Seasons Hotel in Bangkok.The superstar toque was best known for his work at Darley Street in Sydney, and his weekly cooking show, Chef Mue Thong.

Designed to serve the guest population of the hotel as well as the daily rhythms of broader downtown diners, Kittichai benefits from its principals’ strong track record in hospitality. The restaurant not only embodies the cuisine of Thailand, but also other aspects of the culture including design and dress. With ottoman seating, private gazebos and black bamboo screens, the Rockwell Group has interpreted Thailand’s vibrant design and architecture on a smaller scale in the restaurant’s sleek space.

The dining room is decorated in a color palette of crimson, orange and dark woods and anchored by two enormous banquettes facing a pool. Arranged on an intimate scale with seating for 140 people, Kittichai encompasses both a bar and dining room.The restaurant also provides table service in season on the hotel’s street front open-air terrace.

Nimit’s Philosophies

Nimit’s Philosophies

Very few people in Mobile, Alabama will ever go to Thailand, but then they don’t really need to thanks to Sivaporn Nimityongskul, better known as Nimit. As the owner/manager of Bangkok Thai Cuisine, she has brought a hefty slice of Thai culture and cuisine to the people of Mobile.

In 1991 she built her first restaurant in a suburb of the coastal Alabama city, and ten years later she opened a second restaurant on its busiest thoroughfare, Airport Boulevard. Both restaurants feature authentic Thai cuisine prepared by Thai cooks, using the best ingredients available. According to Nimit, “It doesn’t matter if you have the best chef in the world if you don’t also use the freshest vegetables and seafood and the finest quality meats and poultry in your restaurant.” Surrounded by farmland and the Gulf of Mexico the Mobile area can easily provide high quality ingredients to Bangkok Thai Cuisine’s two locations.

Both restaurants are furnished with carved teak tables and chairs from Thailand. But the Airport Boulevard location is a bit more upscale with pine paneled walls and intimate lighting. It features a variety of seating arrangements, with booths along two walls and carved teak panels to assure privacy. The central area houses a number of small tables grouped in a variety of ways to accommodate small and large parties, and the rear area is intimately screened off in one corner to meet the needs of guests who desire more privacy. Throughout the restaurant carved teak screens and wooden screens brightly painted in traditional Thai motifs provide flexibility in defining particular areas depending on the needs of any given day. Three walls of the restaurant are adorned with a series of colorful paintings that depict the life of Buddha interspersed with an assortment of mirrors with carved teak frames.
