Danville, VA - A new Thai restaurant is coming to Danville, and you helped bring it there.
The Danville Office of Economic Development sent out a survey to residents last Fall asking what kind of new restaurant they would want. It was between Greek and Thai, and Thai won.In six weeks, an award winning chef will be opening Moon River Thai on North Main Street, right next to the Historic North Theatre.
"What a great way to partner with a venue that's already bringing hundreds of people every week up to the North Main Hill area," said Corrie Teague, Project Manager for Danville Office of Economic Development. "Now they can enjoy a show at the North Theatre, a magic show or a comedian and sit next door and have a few drinks or enjoy their wonderful menu."
Moon River Thai is newest addition to Danville's newly designated Tourism Zone.
The city awarded the restaurant a $50,000 grant to get started.
