Basil Spice Thai Cuisine will open at 3183 South Grand Boulevard, a storefront roughly equidistant between The King & I and Pho Grand. (The space used to be a coffeeshop, but I'm drawing a blank on the name.) Looks like this will open later rather than sooner.
UPDATE: Annie informs me that the coffeeshop on Grand was called...Coffee on Grand.
