Expanding upon a successful franchise of fast-casual Mexican restaurants into the world of upscale dining would seem a daunting task for most restaurateurs, but the team at 50 Eggs, Inc has launched Yardbird Southern Table & Bar and now a second Pan-Asian restaurant just off busy Lincoln Road Mall called Khong River House. Named for a particular stretch of river where the regional Thai menu takes it’s inspiration, Chef Sudarat Loasupho’s kitchen prepares some traditional and some updated recipes redolent of lemongrass, curry and fiery red chilies. Serving weekend brunch, lunch and dinner, the restaurant buzzes day and night.

What distinguishes the creative effort to launch such particular culinary experiences starts with the unique dining room design which transformed a defunct Chinese cafe into a breathtaking double-height space lined with reclaimed wood and vintage market handicrafts. A second floor lounge space hosts a weekend house party called Patpong Road, a cheeky reference to the notorious red light district. The new lounge offers Asian street food and spicy tropical cocktails Fridays and Saturdays.
