This Saturday, Jan 7, Ayara Thai in Westchester will open their pop-up Thai eatery and culinary project, Ayara Lūk. In the Thai language, lūk, means child and the pop-up is named that way because the second generation of the family, Vanda Asapahu and her siblings Peter and Cathy, will operate it. Some of the more popular dishes from the parent restaurant will remain and modern takes on classic Thai dishes will appear.
The Ayara Lūk pop-up is a great idea as it allows their customers to continue enjoying their food while the parent restaurant undergoes renovation and expansion. The pop-up will end once the work at Ayara Thai, completes. The renovation work begins in February 2017 and will last approximately 4 months.
Ayara Lūk is only a stone’s throw from the parent restaurant and will be open to the public this Saturday, January 7th at 5:00 p.m., for dine-in and take-out. Hours of operations for January are Monday – Saturday from 11:00 a.m. 10 p.m. Closed Sunday.
Since I love Thai food, I’m excited at the prospect of experiencing their modern take on Thai cuisine.
