Situated at 3699 Lenox Rd NE, Suite 5, at the corner of Piedmont and Lenox next to the Prominence Apartments, the restaurant was once slated to be called Snap Thai & Lobster Bar.

All three owners of Snap Thai Fish House, Pattie Lawlertratana, Jason Adjanasuknart, and Yai Siripetamorn, were born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, each immigrating to the United States, where they have all worked in the Atlanta restaurant scene for over a decade, according to a press release. Chef Pattie Lawlertratana — Executive Chef/Owner at Bangkok Thai — will head the kitchen. “My goal is to take the guests of Snap Thai Fish House on a culinary journey to the coast of Thailand,” said Lawlertratana.

Lawlertratana is a classically-trained chef who worked and lived on the southern coast of France for one year while in culinary school, where she found a passion for working with high-quality seafood. A large portion of her menu will feature a fish-market style selection, allowing guests to choose from a list of wild-caught fresh fish and how they would like it prepared. The preparations all use an interplay of Thai flavors and textures. The menu will also feature a Lobster-focused section, including her interpretations of items like Thai Lobster Rolls, Lobster Pad Thai, and a Lobster Burger made with lobster, wagyu brisket, Thai slaw, and Thai BBQ Smoked Honey Sauce. 

Chef Pattie will offer a rotating list of “Chef Selections” — expect Thai Crab Cakes, Crispy Whole Snapper, and a Braised Beef Short Rib with Coastal Thai Yellow Curry. 

Jason Adjanasuknart — former General Manager of Nan Thai Fine Dining & Tamarind Seed, Partner at Bangkok Thai — and Yai Siripetamorn — Partner at Bangkok Thai — will focus on the wine and cocktail program, along with the guest dining experience. 

“I plan to feature a great list of Champagne, Rosé, and sparkling wines to complement our seafood dominant menu,” Adjanasuknart said. “We will have an extensive wine list of nearly 80 different labels. Our cocktail program will feature Thai-inspired ingredients, including exotic fruits, coconut, lime, lychee, and pineapple. I’m also a scotch enthusiast, so our guests can expect a sizeable scotch and whisky selection.”

The team called upon Bangkok resident and designer Sasikan Supradith Na Ayuthaya to design the black and gold coastal-themed restaurant. The open space features bare concrete with gold flaking, with plenty of windows throughout the 84-seat dining room. The indoor/outdoor bar is the restaurant’s focal point, featuring custom-made fish traps hanging from the ceiling and allowing seating up to 27. An open-air patio resides in front of the restaurant, and a private dining area can seat up to 20. All decorations and lighting were shipped from Thailand.

“I enjoy sharing my Thai culture and hospitality with as many people as possible, and I’m more than excited to help create memorable dining experiences for the guests of Snap Thai Fish House,” Siripetamorn said.

Snap Thai Fish House will serve lunch Monday through Friday, with dinner being served every night of the week. A weekday happy hour and weekend brunch should begin in April.
