Thai Basil Restaurant Midtown (J St.) began forty-five years ago in Ubon, Thailand as a neighborhood eatery offering seasonal and fresh ingredients. Today Thai Basil Restaurant offers the same authentic Thai food made from fresh, local ingredients using traditional methods of cooking passed along from their original founder. All curries are prepared daily and each dish is made to order. No pre-made or frozen products are used. Their signature curry dish consists of 12 herbs and spices slow roasted and ground three times for the right consistency. Thai Basil purchases from local Asian farmers as well as Chan’s Market. Wines are from local vineyards. They offer bicycle delivery by Edible Pedal, use only biodegradable products, compost kitchen scraps, participate in GO Box, and recently purchased a 100% electric car for errands and food delivery. Their guiding philosophy is to be mindful of what we eat, to eat according to season, region and body type, and to savor every bite slowly. That sounds like the Slow Food we know and love!
