Thai Passion on Congress Avenue closing
Thai Passion is closing after 18 years in business. The Thai restaurant located in One America Center (620 Congress Ave.) has been a longtime staple for office workers and late-night diners (and the occasional star). Its wall of celebrity guests include part-time Austinite Elijah Wood. An employee says that the restaurant will close at the end of the month, as its lease is ending. The south location (9500 S. I-35) will remain open.
