As I ate lunch at Basil Spice, a slow, bittersweet melody played over the restaurant's speakers. I hummed along with the climactic passage: hum HUM hum hum hum hum. It was my fourth visit to the two-month-old Thai restaurant, and I had heard this particular tune during each of my previous meals. More precisely, I had heard nothing but this particular tune during each of my previous visits. The song, five minutes long, give or take, plays on a seemingly endless loop.
This week I visit Basil Spice, the new Thai restaurant on South Grand. Check back tomorrow to see what I think. (FYI: As of now, the restaurant's Web site is only a placeholder.)
