Yesterday, Italian. Today, Thai. That's the recent history of 1015 Ninth St. in downtown Sacramento. The long and narrow quarters, most recently occupied by the Italian restaurant Il Posto, is the new home of the reborn Thai restaurant Gaesorn.
Gaesorn originally opened in early 2003 at 1020 12th St., but when that building began to be extensively renovated owners Sommanadtida "Sarah" Pongpeerayos, left, and Jerry Umnartyutithum took their popular interpretation of Thai cooking out to Fulton Avenue, where they opened Mona's Restaurant.
This week they quietly reopened Gaesorn at the Il Posto site, vacant since early this summer. They aren't quite set up to serve the entire menu, but expect to be sometime this coming week. Lunch is being served Monday through Friday, dinner Monday through Saturday.
They will continue to operate Mona's.
