A collection of hospitality veterans have banded together to try something new. Ivan Raintung (Mulan), Bell Chabchit (Osha Thai), chef Santi Buaphaeng (Silom Thai), and executive chef Varee "Nam" Somanee (Blue Elephant Thai in Bangkok), along with Erny Liauw and Praim Siribothi, have taken over the former Chin Chin space at 1715 Howell Mill Road and turned it into a trendy spot for dining and imbibing. Called Tiki Thai, it serves fusion fare with authentic Thai flavors and craft cocktails with a tiki bar flair.
