Thai and sushi restaurant opening on Harlem Avenue

Forest Park will be home to a new Thai and sushi restaurant as White Crane Creative Thai and Sushi is anticipated to open around the beginning of June at 819 Harlem Ave., the previous location of Mom’s Place. The restaurant owners are applying for a liquor license and will also serve smoothies and bubble tea.

Husband and wife team Sinchai and Bee Suptaveeying, who have since 2018 owned the building that formerly housed Mom’s Place, are bringing their experience and creative flair to the space in what will be a fully renovated restaurant, with an open kitchen and industrial-style design. They even “chased down” a famous restaurant muralist from Chicago to create a giant mural of cranes on the north interior wall.

Their three- and four-year-old sons were with them at the restaurant on April 24 when the Review stopped by to see the space and talk to the Suptaveeyings about their plans and background.
