Good Catch Thai Urban Bistro focuses on seafood in CBD | Food and drink | Gambit WeeklyPosted by On


At the beginning of their initial romance in Thailand, Aom Srisuk and Frankie Weinberg liked to get away from the city to put their toes in the sand on Ko Samet island. “We were young, and bungalows there were cheap,” chef Srisuk recalls. “That was 23 years ago, when Frankie was making $250 a month. We would eat seafood cooked on the beach and talk about having a seafood restaurant of our own. But I never thought it would happen.”

Although the sand is conspicuously absent, last month Srisuk and Weinberg opened Good Catch Thai Urban Bistro at 828 Gravier St. in the CBD. This is their second Thai restaurant, a follow-up to Pomelo, which they opened in Uptown in 2021. Good Catch took over the space that was home to Singha Thai for more than a decade.

The modern, airy restaurant is triple Pomelo’s size, with a full bar, soft lighting and rattan accents. There is a bigger kitchen with a wok station and a hood for ventilation. “Aom must be so creative at Pomelo because she cooks on induction burners,” Weinberg says. “Some dishes she can’t make there. Here we have gas appliances, even a small walk in. There are many more menu options.”
