James Beard featured chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin — currently at Bite City Grill and previously at Pakapo — is opening Kin Kin Urban Thai in Fort Worth early next year.

The modern restaurant will feature traditional Thai food with a twist. While the menu hasn’t been finalized yet, examples of dishes that might be plated include spinach betel leaf salad with toasted coconut, almonds and shallots and pan seared halibut with a chili tamarind reduction. The cocktail program is run by Eddy’s brother, Chris, and while that too hasn’t been wrapped up, I received word that one of the drinks they’re playing with is a tom kha Bloody Mary (since when did alcoholic soups become all the rage?)

The 3,500 square foot restaurant at 2801 W. 7th Street is scheduled to open in January 2015.
