If you’re a fan of the Thai-Fusion at Thai and Sushi in East Atlanta Village or Donkey’s Mexican Bar and Grill in Sandy Springs, you are ready to add another hot spot to your restaurant rotation. Sweet Octopus, a new Thai restaurant in Georgia already catching eyes and tastebuds of Georgia foodies. What Now Atlanta reports the highly anticipated hot spot will open in downtown Duluth in the popular Parsons Alley later this summer. 

The new Asian eatery will span two floors (and an outdoor patio), 3,000 square feet, each floor having its own concept and design. The first floor will serve quick-service “street-style” food inspired by the street food carts of Thailand. A complete menu has yet to be released, but the restaurant is set to hold the same standard as its sister company, Thai and Sushi EAV. The restaurant will curate high quality, healthy foods including quinoa, brown or cauliflower rice, and organic, grass-fed meat choices.

Customers will enjoy these delectable eats counter-style. Prices are expected to be similar to Thai and Sushi EAV with entrees being $11-12 each. Sweet Octopus will also have a wide selection of beer, wine, and of course sake, to perfectly pair with your meal. Narcity has reached them for more information, and what we will update the article with the full list as soon as we get a response. Here's hoping they have mouth-watering sushi like Thai and Sushi EAV. 

And that’s only the first floor. The second level will host a bubble tea bar with a more cafe and lounge energy. This floor is inspired by relaxation and tranquility as you enjoy a variety of bubble tea options; also serving snacks and other handheld foods. The over 21 crowd will have fun with the “alcohol-infused boba” to take your Sweet Octopus experience to the next level.

If the artistry of two distinct floors weren’t enough, Yuwachit will also release a print magazine, titled (you guessed it) Sweet Octopus, that will feature explorations of Asian culture from food and sake recipes (even those used in the restaurant) to a host of tips on what to do, where to go and what to eat when you visit Thailand. I am loving the curated experience Sweet Octopus will deliver to fully engulf you in more than just delicious food.

The restaurant will practice sustainability for the environmentally-friendly babes. All of the utensils, plates and straws are biodegradable.

Sweet Octopus is set to open mid-August so keep your stomachs and minds open for this Asian deep dive experience.
