Hungry Chili will close at the end of August, victim of cascading business relocation. First
, Curry Village expanded into the Dresden Row space once occupied by Baan Thai, and the owners of Baan Thai moved into the upstairs of the Blower Street building occupied by Hungry Chili. "He offered to buy us out," explains Hungry Chili's Molly Lee, "but it wasn't enough money." As Lee tells it, what followed was six months of problematic reconstruction of the building, resulting in reduced sales, and Hungry Chili decided to see the restaurant through to the end of the lease, then to close.
Asked if relocation is in the offering, Lee says no. "Seven years is enough."
