Thai restaurant and cocktail bar taking over the former Black Market on Mass Ave

Back in September, restauranteur Ed Rudisell pulled the plug on Black Market citing the deficiencies with PPP and having to reduce the restaurant to a limited staff — leaving a deep hole on Mass Ave.

Soon, the prime location on the end of the strip, will welcome its new tenant — BODHI, a Thai bistro specializing in craft cocktails.

BODHI has been in development for quite a while, originally planning to open in the Herron-Morton neighborhood just across from Tinker Street early last year. Those plans ultimately fell through, but the former Black Market location presented a great opportunity.

They expect hours to be 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Monday through Friday and 12:00 PM to 11:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

Once bar seating resumes later this year, they’d like to stay open later with a reduced bar-only menu.

BODHI is currently offering carryout but will be opening on Thursday, March 24th with space for 12 groups of 4 people or less from 5pm to 8:30pm. Reservations are open now.

“Typically the bar program at most Thai restaurants is an after thought but we want to be considered more as a cocktail bar that happens to have great Thai food,” said co-owner Taelor Carmine.

BODHI has been testing a variety of cocktails and will also have a decent beer menu.

Although the food menu has not yet released, diners can expect a steak salad known as yum nua, massaman curry, coconut chicken soup and pad Thai among a variety of popular Thai dishes.

Don’t expect a large menu. BODHI will have a smaller seasonally rotating menu that will keep your taste buds coming back for more.
