Thai Basil to Open in Stillwater Later This Month

A Thai food restaurant is coming to Stillwater.

Thai Basil will open later this month in the former Aristos building on the North Frontage Road. The sale of Aristos was finalized last week.

Samy Youssef told the Stillwater Gazette that owning two restaurants became “too much,” and that he wants “to spend some time with my kids before they graduate.”

Youseff also owns The Main Cafe in downtown Stillwater.

Last month, the Stillwater City Council approved a full liquor license request by John and Phouvanh Soderquist for Thai Basil.

Soderquist also owns Pad Thai on Grand Avenue in St. Paul.
