#2671 #S1298 - Thud Suan, Seattle (Capitol Hill) - 12/11/2014

Thud Suan sits a bit off the beaten track of Seattle's Capitol Hill retail core, at the base of a bunch of new condos and along the city's only street that cuts all the way from Elliot Bay to Lake Union. It seems like a tough place to make a go of a restaurant -- Dulces Bistro last less than a year here, and I gave Thudsuan low odds of making it more than three years (the median life new restaurants), but it has now surpassed that.

The owner is a veteran of local Thai restaurants (Root Table, Racha, Pestle Rock) and hoped that a more "adventurous" combination of traditional Thai and local seafood would help his own place survive. My meal seemed like fairly pedestrian, but perhaps I stuck too closely the standards. They serve cocktails that are a bit too far on the sweet and juicy side for my tastes, but at least they offer some originals, including some of their own infusions.

As they've outlived the average now, I shall have to give them a few more tries.
