MayRee will bring Thai food to 1st Street


A Thai restaurant called MayRee is in the works at 58 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue…

Directors will appear before CB3’s SLA committee for a new liquor license for the space this month…

The owner runs a similar establishment in Illinois. According to the questionnaire recorded on the CB3 website, food comes first here:

The premises is a restaurant where the focus is on food, not alcohol. The restaurant will NOT have late hours. It will close at 11 p.m., five nights a week. On Friday and Saturday it will close at 11:30 p.m., so we do not expect customers to come to the restaurant for the purpose of drinking.

The premises is a small family style Thai restaurant with only 25 seats including the small 7 seat bar. There will be no television, so it will clearly be a place where customers come for the food, not to watch sporting events or listen to music.

This virtual CB3 committee meeting is Monday, June 13 at 6:30 p.m. Find the Zoom link here.

As previously stated, many restaurants have come and gone here from The Elephant, a Thai restaurant, closed in 2011 after 17 years in business. Maybe people expected more Thai here.
