Thai, Japanese, and sushi restaurant
While the hope for a street food scene here remains just that – a hope – a few restaurants aim to offer a taste of the street in the comfort of an indoor environment. One such restaurant is Tuk Tuk, which attempts to deliver the flavors from Thailand's sidewalk vendors. Located in the former Taurus location, Tuk Tuk has a pedigree. The chef, Deedee Niyomkul, is the daughter of Nan Niyomkul, who owns both Nan Thai and Tamarind Seed, our city's most upscale and critically acclaimed Thai restaurants.
Obscure dishes and new flavor combinations offered at the Buckhead Japanese sushi joint. Skip the rolls and opt for the pristine cuts of fish nestled onto sticky sushi rice. Check out the list of specials on the whiteboard out front for goodies like shoyu ramen, and the beef curry with magenta oshinko. Looking for something a little more familiar?

Dining at Taqueria La Oaxaquena used to sometimes be difficult because of the limited seating. But the restaurant has moved to an expansive new location where there's plenty of seating and parking. The salsa and condiment bar is full of the same pristine choices. The sopes have the requisite qualities of greatness--a crispy crust, soft masa center and fresh toppings. And there are tacos galore. But the restaurant's famous tlayudas--a specialty of Oaxaca resembling a large pizza made with a crunchy tortilla base and topped with chewy strings of Oaxacan cheese--are impossible to pass up.
Tex-Mex, margaritas, and a bevy of taco options. Good rooftop patio.
Though the restaurant's commitment to locally-sourced ingredients may not be original in Atlanta, there's no doubt that Terrace at Ellis Hotel is making an earnest attempt to highlight the best Georgia has to offer, both in terms of its produce and its emerging cuisine. The menu boasts a variety of vegetarian dishes that far surpass the tired vegetable plates and omnipresent field greens that usually serve as a menu's meat-free selections. Among them is a pleasing and perplexing tofu entrée, coated in herbs and crunchy breading and served over a risotto-like smoosh of Carolina Gold rice, sugar snap peas, carrots and almonds. As for the meatier dishes, a pork belly appetizer served with a jalapeño cornbread waffle touched on all the right notes, both on the palate and culturally. But other dishes weren't as enjoyable. An appetizer of pearl barley risotto with wild mushrooms and wilted arugula was oddly bland — a problem that popped up with some frequency over the course of meals at Terrace. Still, in a part of town that's a bit of a wasteland for decent dining, Terrace, with its lofty ambitions, is fully worthy of our attention.
To enjoy a meal at Taverna Plaka, get drunk off the lengthy list of Greek wines, dance and order the mezze. The many appetizer-size dishes tend to be better than the entrees, and we recommend the very spicy but irresistible pork-and-lamb sausage.
