Thai Chef Street Food coming to Rockville

Thai Chef Street Food is coming to Rockville Town Square in late summer 2021, property owner Federal Realty announced yesterday. While the development has struggled in many respects, Asian restaurants have generally been successful there, as Rockville has continued to emerge as the near-equal to Annandale as the region's top choice for Asian cuisine. Now the winning formula for the city and Federal Realty expands with the arrival of Thai Chef, which has an existing location at Dupont Circle.

What sets Thai Chef apart from all the other Thai restaurants around? “We believe that if you haven't had Thai street food, you haven't had Thai food,” Thai Chef's Chalisa Fitts, said Monday. “We look forward to getting to know the community and showcasing our Thai favorites such as Moo-phing, BBQ pork on skewers and Catfish Dry Curry, fried catfish filet sautéed with spicy curry paste, Thai eggplant, wild finger root, kaffir lime, peppercorn and fresh basil, as well as our handcrafted specialty cocktails.”  

“Street food has become a fan favorite over the years for many people and Thai Chef’s twist on the genre is a unique and welcome addition to the Rockville Town Square neighborhood,”  Federal Realty Director of Asset Management - Mixed Use Dan Corwin said yesterday. Thai Chef's menu is said to feature entrees you would expect to find from street vendors in Bangkok. But as you can see from the rendering above, the atmosphere will be more refined than a street cart experience.
