The name of Chao, comes from Chao Phraya the major river through Thailand, and was the influence for the design concept. Where the river flows through Bangkok, old teak wood fishing boats line the shores as an impressive collage of textures and colors highlighted over the imposing flowing waters. From the antique woods, fishing tackle, patina metals, and elements used in the fishing boats we derived the feel of the restaurant. The design was a collaborative effort with the owner, David Fliger, to take his vision for an urban atmosphere combined with the concept of the river vernacular and developed a unique space that entices the diner to enjoy a different dining experience each time they eat or drink.

The menu offerings will vary from week to week depending on seasonal options. Happy hour specials include $5 pitchers of craft beer, $5 glasses of wine and $5 house cocktails from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Friday.
