Welcome to the Tim Thai Classic restaurant in Westminster.

Eating at an ethnic restaurant is certainly nothing new in Carroll County. Ever since William Winchester founded Westminster in 1764 on one of the three main roads in Maryland for travelers headed west, there has always been a strong restaurant tradition in town.

The Thai restaurant at 17 East Main Street in Westminster MD recently changed hands.

There has been a restaurant at 17 East Main Street as long as most folks can remember. http://tinyurl.com/lt7cx5q

Last Friday night, November 15, 2013, after John and Debby Sosnowsky’s opening at Off Track Art, John, Debby and Corrie Sosnowsky, Bobby Waddell, Linda Van Hart, Caroline Babylon and I went over to the Tim Thai Classic restaurant in Westminster at 17 East Main Street for some food and fellowship.

There has been a restaurant at 17 East Main Street as long as most folks can remember. It is believed that the “Central Restaurant” was located there as far back as the 1950s. Much more research will be needed to determine when the Central Restaurant opened and closed. Phone books from the very early 1950s show a “Central Restaurant” located in Hampstead at 20 South Main Street, but not in Westminster.

The 1952 Westminster phone directory shows Acme Market at 1 East Main Street; Treat Shop – owned by the Burk Family – at 5 East Main; the Carroll Pastry Shop at 7 East Main; “The American Restaurant” at 9 East Main; The Coffman-Fisher Co. Dept. Store at 11 East Main; Hollander’s Home & Auto Supplies at 13 East Main; Read’s Drug and Chemical C0 at 15 East Main; and 17 is listed for “Dryden, Clarence C, Helen F Myrtle… Kipe Doris, Larry E Martin.” Are we understand that it was a residence in 1952?

The 1954 phone directory does not show a listing for a restaurant. (It does give my address as 40 Ward Avenue in Westminster.)

Recently 17 East Main Street has been a Thai restaurant for many-many years. However, we were not aware that it recently changed hands.

Although the new owners of the Thai restaurant at 17 East Main Street have repainted some of the walls and are in the process of changing a few things around; the food and the service were still wonderful.

I had the vegetable fried rice, spring rolls, and shitake soup; plus a little of this and a little of that off of my friends’ plates. Caroline had the eggplant tofu. It was all delicious. And the service was friendly, conversational, personable and personal.

The website, http://www.thaiclassiconline.com/ notes, “We have recently changed ownership and management. As such our menu (now posted) will be changing.

“Our offerings are individually cooked in the traditional way. Thai and other Asian foods that have been "tweaked" for American tastes. “Come in and try our Tom Kha (coconut soup) and taste the balance of sweetness and tartness…”

In addition to an article in the Baltimore Sun on February 11, 2013, I have written quite a number of articles on restaurants, inns, hotels and saloons in Westminster…
