Owner and chef Nina Singto will open a new location of Thai Esane in Brentwood at 203 Franklin Road, Ste. 100, Brentwood, in the former location of Nama Sushi Bar at Hill Center Brentwood. The restaurant will offer lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.

The Thai eatery, which also has a location in Nashville, offers specialty dishes inspired by authentic Southeastern Asian cuisine, such as Malaysian noodles, steamed dumplings, larb chicken wraps, papaya salad, Bangkok wings and drunken noodles.

“We have served the people of Nashville authentic Thai cuisine for more than six years now, and their loyal support is allowing us to expand to Williamson County,” Singto said in a release. “We strive to honor the Thai/Laos culture through the restaurant’s food, décor and [hospitality], and it’s such an amazing opportunity to share my culture to other neighborhoods of the city I call home.”

In addition to the new, 3,500-square-foot Brentwood location, Thai Esane will also have a residency in spring 2021 at Assembly Food Hall, a 100,000-square-foot food hall slated for Fifth and Broadway, a mixed-use retail and entertainment hub under construction in downtown Nashville.

Thai Esane is slated to open in January, according to a release. www.thaiesane.com
