Thai Eatery to debut early June.
Lindbergh Center will now have a more unique and ethnic restaurant option than Taco Mac, Chili's and Longhorn Steakhouse, all of which currently occupy space at the mixed-use development.
Niki Pattharakositkul has plans to open 26 Thai Kitchen and Bar at 541 Main Street NE, in space formerly occupied by The Firkin & Lindbergh Pub.
Pattharakositkul told What Now Atlanta Tuesday the restaurant will serve Thai cuisine with a modern spin and the establishment will feature a full bar featuring a wide selection of asian-fusion inspired creative cocktails. In Adele-like fashion, Pattharakositkul named the establishment "26 Thai Kitchen And Bar" as she is 26 years old and wants the name to serve as a monument to her age when she opened her first restaurant.
She is opening her business in Lindbergh Center because the transit-oriented development features both businesses and residential components. There's no doubt that having a MARTA rail station in the immediate area helps as well.
Pattharakositkul has been searching for the right spot and planning a menu for the restaurant for years. She is happy to be moving forward after finding the right location and chef, who helped to perfect the menu.
26 Thai Kitchen and Bar will serve lunch and dinner, and only dinner on Saturdays and Sundays.
The head chef of the eatery has worked in five star restaurants in Thailand and Singapore, so guests can rest assured that they will enjoy authentic food from a well-seasoned cook.
The spacious 3,421-square-foot location will undergo renovations, including new paint, new floor tiles, new kitchen equipment, and demolishing of a partition in the dining area, according to a commercial alteration permit filed with City of Atlanta.
26 Thai Kitchen and Bar is slated to open by the beginning of June.
