IMM Thai (1360 H Street, NE) has applied for a liquor license (they currently cannot serve alcohol, see our review here).  Of note on their liquor license, they have applied to allow live music on Fridays and Saturdays.  Additionally, IMM now serves lunch during the week.  We spoke with representatives at the restaurant, and they told us that they plan on offering delivery in the near future.  Additionally, they are working on renovating the upstairs area.  While the final plans are still up in the air, the second floor may have a bar and/or a sushi bar.

As mentioned last week, IMM Thai (1360 H Street, NE) will be holding a soft opening on H Street for the next several weeks prior to their grand opening.  During this soft opening, they will have a limited menu (which turns out isn’t actually that limited, see below).  We stopped by last night to check it out.

Overall, we were very impressed.  We argued several years ago that H Street desperately needed a Thai restaurant, and thus far, IMM fills that void and goes beyond.  You can see the menu and pictures from our dinner down below.  Our favorites were the lettuce wrap with chicken (a traditional larb chicken dish that also had a slight sweet tang to it) and the eggplant fried rice with chicken.  The prices are reasonable and you get a significant amount of food.  Our one hope is that they do a little more work to improve the interior of the restaurant–there has not been much change since the fairly short lived Pho Bar and Grill previously occupied the space.

IMM Thai Soft Opens on H Street, Official Opening in Coming Weeks

IMM Thai (1360 H Street, NE) held the first evening of its soft opening last night and will continue to have a soft evening opening with a limited menu for the next several weeks.  This location will be their second location as they currently have a restaurant Annandale, Virginia (see our preview post here).  We spoke with the IMM Thai team, and they told us that the soft opening menu will feature several items from the larger menu at their Annandale restaurant.  They plan on being open most nights but recommend that you call their Annandale restaurant to check prior to going to their location on H.

In a couple of weeks, they will hold a grand opening and will roll out their full menu that will be similar to their Annandale menu.  They do not currently have a liquor license but plan on applying for one in the future.  Initially, IMM Thai on H will be open for dinner service only, but they plan on expanding to lunch service in the near future.
