I was just having a Thai Iced Teaser at Urth Cafe in Santa Monica and noticed the Thai Artish place across the street is converting at least part of its space into a Vegan Thai joint. Personally I'm completely done with Vegan Thai (well maybe will have a cowboy burger again), but will definitely give it a walk by when it opens and see if there is any dif. I think that area is entirely under-served by vegan options, which with just the raw place there. Its probably going to attract the Santa Monica community college crowd so it'll do well. Would have liked to see something more creative, though, but hey, Vegan Thai makes bank so what can ya do.
