Barely five months after its opening, Kin Kin Urban Thai near Oak Lawn Avenue in Dallas has closed. Chef-owner Eddy Thretipthuangsin has decided to replace it with a restaurant called BITE that he first launched in Fort Worth but has since closed.

[UPDATE on April 13: According to SideDish, BITE has closed. Facebook confirms.]

[UPDATE on May 4: The sibling restaurant, Kin Kin Urban Thai in Fort Worth, has also closed, according to dfw.com.]

Back to the original story: Thretipthuangsin says BITE's menu includes "a wide variety of cuisine, not just Thai food." The menu is "global," which means chicken wings, burgers, flatbreads and salads, according to the menu. 

BITE was located at 3211 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas.
