It’s true. We once found a Capitol Hill planning permit with these simple project notes: “Replace the old Thai restaurant with a new Thai restaurant.”
Here’s a look at the Hill’s latest new restaurant to create dishes catering to Seattle’s favorite cuisine.
Soi is the creation of husband and wife restaurateurs Gabe Wiborg and Yuie Helseth Soi who are bringing their years of food and drink industry experience and Kent-tested and approved recipes to E Union. The new restaurant quietly opened last week in the giant Broadstone Infinity development. “We wanted to do a restaurant like Soi in the beginning but Kent wasn’t the right place,” Wiborg told CHS earlier this year. “We had ambitious visions, ideas, and goals.”
Soi joins quite the flock of Thai restaurants in Central Seattle — we count 19 in the neighborhoods west of I-5, north of Cherry, south of 520. In coming months, Big Uncle will make it 19 1/2 — though we’d be willing to bet another two or three will be added to the list in the meantime.
Soi is located at 1400 10th Ave. You can learn more at soicapitolhill.com.
