Circles Thai in No Libs is Open

Circles Thai in No Libs is Open

For months now, a sign has hung on the 800 block of North Second Street that has teased and satiated the appetites of local Northern Liberty inhabitants. Circles Contemporary Cuisines, formerly a Newbold neighborhood favorite, has been rumored to open for months in the heart of the 19123. After a dip at the North Shore Beach Club for the weekly Monday party Locals Only and a workout session at Sweat, I walked by what was for months a brown papered façade. However, on this encounter, I experienced light, life, and the aroma of amazing Asian cuisine. Having been a Newbold resident for three years, my sister and I welcomed Plan Eat Thai (the original name) with open arms. We were proudly one of their first loyal customers and bloggers, my sister’s blog quoted in a Foobooz article. When I left the 19146, I was most saddened by the departure of Circle’s from my everyday take out regime. Favorites of mine included their cheesesteak spring rolls, curry dishes, pad kee mow, and the seared duck breast salad. I ran across 2nd street at my sighting, hurried in and was quickly greeted by a friendly hostess. She informed me that they had been opened since Thursday and that I may make reservations for the dining room on Open Table. After our interaction, I had a chance to judge the interior. Disappointed by the dining room in Newbold, I was quite pleased with the sequel. The interior creates for a perfectly adorable Thai BYOB ambiance, reminiscent of an intimate Banana Leaf. By candlelight, I could see half the dining full of energetic locals. With so many great foodie possibilities to choose from in Northern Liberties and Fishtown, Asian is not one. Amongst gastro pubs galore, Circles has most definitely found a new home.  And our arms are wide, wide open.
