Brown Sugar by the Sea is like no Thai restaurant you have ever experienced. Yes, the bright, exotic flavors and the “four pillars” of Thai cuisine are at the core: sweet, sour, salty, spicy. Now add to that all that freshness with the four pillars of Thai cuisine flavors, and your taste buds will awaken to a new concept. Step into a dining room that is at once warm and striking, dressed in golden orange and buoyant lime green. Enjoy live acoustic music seated at our new bar and savor something from a creative, offbeat mixed drink menu. Experience the best of the old and new as our gracious staff incorporate iPad ordering, electronic waitlist service, online ordering, and an online guest rewards program with traditional, professional service. Our most outstanding feature? Brown Sugar by the Sea is a truly family-run endeavor, with inspiration and guidance from our famous sister restaurant (really, more like our mother restaurant) the famous Brown Sugar Café in Boston. We are grateful for their counsel and fortunate to carry their hard-earned reputation in a new and exciting direction.
