    I live in Short North and attended opening party for Basil at 4th and High. Really good food and oustanding atmosphere for the location. Prices are reasonable for food and staff is very friendly. It has great service, decor and prices. A really great experience – not the sometimes common – bad service/overpriced food that is lurking these days in my area.

    Thanks for the heads up. I definitely will give them a try this weekend.

    I got a quick sneak peak at the menu, it appeared to be mostly the general Asian fare with Thai fusion and Pad Thai. Opening tonight for the hop!

    This is one of the restaurant openings I’ve been really looking forward to (along with Skillet, which I still haven’t made it to). Glad to see positive notes in the first review.

    Are they open for lunch today or just dinner tonight?

    You should go to Skillet right now and have the breakfast risotto because I want it and am probably too lazy to go out of the house until work so I can live vicariously through you.

    lol…I swear, I had every plan on doing it today too, but I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old that I have no intention of attempting to take to a restaurant.

    I keep reading everyone’s feedback and drooling though.

    As far as Basil, any new place serving Pad Thai gets at least a shot from me pretty quick.

    Skillet does carryout really well! Just sayin’. Call 15 minutes ahead.

    It was pretty good. I got the noodle dish with fishcake and for dinner just under $10 ain’t bad, but for lunch it’s too expensive and I’ll probably stick with Lac Viet. Very similar to Nida’s, maybe too much.

    We went last night and thought it was great – especially for opening night. The renovation they did to that space is jaw-dropping. Their menu is much more classic Thai than Nida’s, and they do it very well. Service was flawless. Honestly, if I didn’t live in the neighborhood and just stumbled in, I wouldn’t have had any idea it was opening night.
    A great addition to upper short north!

    Stopped in with my partner for a drink. Didn’t try any of the food but enjoyed the new look — lots of dark wood, really neat textured floors and a darker look all around (love that). Grabbed a carryout menu and will definitely check out the food sometime soon. I also echo the sentiment that it seems quite similar to Nida’s and I’m kind of surprised how close two Thai places are to one another.

    @Andrew – they’re closed on Mondays. They keep normal lunch hours the rest of the week.

    We ate there yesterday. The food was awesome, the space was sexy and they’re one of the few restaurants in the Short North that really nailed the lighting. I’ll be there a lot.
