Boston Globe: Boda & Pai Men Miyake

The Boston Globe Travel section has published an article about a new generation of Asian restaurants in Maine. The article focuses on Boda and Pai Men Miyake in Portland and Long Grain in Camden.

The partners are from northern Thailand and came to Portland by way of Seattle. They opened Boda in February with general manager Katie Boone, who with endless patience sets just the right mood for the front of the house. “We wanted to take the Asian restaurant out of its typical giant menu and giant portions and lots of takeout business Americanized box,’’ says Boone, “to serve Thai food, but to do it in a way that makes sense for Portland.’’
