talks to Charles Phan about his plans for the original Slanted Door location at 584 Valencia St. They're still quite vague, but Grub Street says the concept is more likely to resemble Heaven's Dog than Out the Door.

reports on the impending arrival of a new Hayes Valley Thai restaurant called Bai Thong
