    Unique Thai Fusion Restaurant From a Friend of Arun's is Coming to Andersonville
    Blu 57 promises Thai steak and seafood found nowhere else in Chicago

  • Wazzup not available

    just what we need - another Thai Restaurant. Thai restaurants and mattress stores - enough already - what is wrong with a good American steak restaurant or French restaurant - there is already Italian on the street ----Andersonville is losing its trendy charm.

  • Rob

    Wont somebody think of the old white guys who want steak?!?

  • Fortunately Blu 57 won't be selling Trump Steaks which sold for as much as $250 a piece at Sharper Image and on the QVC shopping channel because the trademark went belly up in 2014. But why would anyone object to a unique steak and seafood house opening up in A'ville unless it was American or French? Is this some sort of anti-Thai thing going on? Anything connected with Joe Sukjam or Arun Sampanthavivat is top quality.
