Donerick Rainey is a familiar face around town – both from his acting career and his stint at Sugarfish Calabasas and other local restaurants in the valley.
Now he’s taken that experience and opened his own place in Warner Center.
Blai combines the best of his partner Kay Riffer’s Thai cuisine with Rainey’s favorite soul food.
The colorful eatery echoes the feel of Thailand with its bright orange walls and custom oversized elephant prints.
The menu offers “Thai food for your soul,” and includes such popular dishes as larb lettuce, veggie rolls, curry noodles, pad Thai, fried rice and summer rolls.
Also featured are drunken noodles, a beef salad, tom yum and tom kah – and of course boba tea.
On the soul food side – try the gumbo and chicken wings.
Blai also offers breakfast, with pancakes, French toast and crepes as featured menu choices.
The new restaurant offers a new twist – your order is delivered by a robot! “Plato” is another member of the workforce – speeding up delivery of food and creating a memorable guest experience.
Both Rainey and Ritter are on site, cooking, serving and greeting their new customers! Visit them at 5780 Canoga Avenue, at the corner of Burbank next to The Stand. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For more information or to place an order call (747) 242-1112.
