Since opening for business on Nov. 27 last year, a new family owned and operated restaurant has been serving up Thai food and earning satisfied reviews from diners at a small location, tucked away behind Walgreens at the intersection of Sunrise Boulevard and Antelope Road.

The commission’s decision authorized the creation of a new developable 1.48-acre parcel next to U.S. Bank, at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Greenback Lane, and also carved out a separate 1.26-acre parcel for Elephant Bar by sectioning it off from an existing 25-acre parcel that houses most of the Mall’s main buildings.
