Snap Thai Fish House, a Thai-inspired seafood restaurant, celebrated its grand opening May 1 at 3699 Lenox Road NE. The new restaurant is helping to cement the development, which also includes Prominence Apartments, as a dining hot spot, joining Zakai Modern Lebanese, CT Reforma Taqueria, and The Yard Milkshake Bar.
Owned and led by classically trained chef Pattie Lawlertratana, the restaurant’s menu features an array of fresh seafood, including coldwater lobster, oysters from both the east and west coasts, and more than 10 varieties of sustainably caught fish delivered daily from the country’s top suppliers. Lawlertratana’s passion for high-quality seafood is evident in the fish-market-style section, where guests can choose their fish and preparation. All prepared with an interplay of Thai flavors and textures.
“I hope that every guest who walks through our doors at Snap Thai Fish House feels transported to the beautiful coast of Thailand through the flavors and atmosphere of our restaurant,” quoted Lawlertratana.
Save room for dessert
Chef Pattie Lawlertratana not only has a flair for creating savory Thai dishes, but also has a passion for crafting delectable desserts. All the desserts served at the restaurant are made in-house daily. Chef Pattie is excited to offer diners a sweet ending to their meal, featuring unique desserts such as a deconstructed strawberry cheesecake and a crown melon panna cotta.
“I believe that dessert should be a celebration of flavors, just like the rest of the meal. That’s why I put as much thought and care into my desserts as I do my entrees,” quoted Lawlertratana.
Time and place
The restaurant is open for dinner seven days a week with lunch on weekdays. The restaurant also offers a special brunch menu from 11:30 am to 3 pm on weekdays, featuring dishes such as Thai Lobster & Waffles and Thai Fish & Chips. A weekend brunch is planned to begin in June.
Snap Thai Fish House boasts a new open-air patio that seats 40 guests and indoor seating for up to 84 diners. At the restaurant entrance, guests are greeted with a striking hanging fish art piece that was shipped from Thailand. The open and sleek space features bare concrete with gold flaking. Numerous windows allow a great deal of natural light to flow through the dining room and into the open kitchen. The indoor/outdoor bar, featuring custom-made fish traps hanging from the ceiling, can accommodate up to 30 guests.
Snap Thai Fish House’s drink list features over a dozen specialty cocktails inspired by Thailand, along with a wine list offering 90 bottles with a significant focus on Champagne, Rosé, and sparkling wines to complement the seafood-dominant menu.
In addition, co-owners Jason Adjanasuknart and Yai Siripetamorn are whiskey enthusiasts and have curated a collection of high-end Japanese Whiskey, Cognac, and Scotch that is unique to the Atlanta area.
“Our whiskey collection is something we’re really proud of, and we can’t wait for our guests to try them,” said Jason Adjanasuknart.
