By now you've heard that Langbaan, the white-hot, prix fixe Thai restaurant behind Paadee, is all booked up from now through the entire summer. Part of the problem is Earl Ninsom and Rassamee Ruaysuntia are creating exquisite Thai dishes that are unlike anything anyone has ever had before, earning Langbaan top marks both locally and nationally, and scoring it a spot as a James Beard Award semi-finalist. Everyone and their grandma wants a taste — and wants to go back for more. But compounding the table shortage is the fact that the restaurant is only open three days a week, from Thursday through Saturday. But starting in April, they're adding Sundays to the schedule.
"We're planning on it," Ninsom tells Eater. "We're getting a couple of new good cooks on board including William Harper who just left Muselet. We need this month to get them up to the speed, then we can start Sunday service."
So keep your eyes glued to the Langbaan reservations page to score one of these Sunday tables. Meanwhile, as we reported yesterday, Doi Dua Vietnamese pop-up will use the space on Sundays in March, then switch to Mondays in April.
