Profile

This venue is closed.

A grinning Buddha proffering a plump baguette graces the awning of this slender brick-walled eatery. He’s an apropos mascot for the Thai-meets-French sandwiches concocted within. Baguettes are sloppily heaped with wok-fried vegetables and chicken, beef, or tofu soaked in piquant Asian sauces, like the black pearl (tangy soy sautéed with scallions) and white ginger (lime-tinged coconut milk laced with curry paste). Shoehorned into a clamorous block of 14th Street littered with shabby fast food joints, Thai Me Up is something of an anomaly: grub to go without a lick of grease. Affable owner Amir Hushinsky has taken the concept of the Vietnamese bánh mì (pickled veggies and meat on a baguette, merci to the French-colonial influence) and added his own spin: “Here, it’s a healthy Thai meal stuffed into a baguette,” he says. The ingredients are simple, and so is the place, with just six tables.
