Pour one out for Nit Noi Cafe — the beloved Thai restaurant in Midtown will officially close its doors at the end of this week.

A tipster pointed Eater in the direction of a sign posted to the restaurant’s door at 2020 Louisiana Street announcing that it will shutter for good on Friday, February 14, and a manager at the restaurant confirmed the closure to Eater over the phone. “Thank you very much for your support,” the sign on the door reads. “We are downsizing.” This closure follows the departure of the original Nit Noi, which shuttered in 2016. In its time, the restaurant scored love from some of Houston’s most famed diners, including late President George H.W. Bush.

Fortunately, fans of Nit Noi can head to its sister spot, Street Food Thai Market, for some of their favorite dishes. Formerly known as Asia Market Thai, the restaurant got a major menu revamp and a brand new name in 2018, and is now serving classic Thai street food dishes like boat noodles, panang beef, and pad thai.
