L’ Thai Organic Cuisine & Wine Bar – Tucker, GA

Another place from the original list, L’Thai was a newcomer to the Atlanta scene, back in 2006.  Cut to 2017 and they’re now one of the longest tenured Asian restaurants in Atlanta.  And the first organic Thai restaurant, according to one source, in the South.  This may be the weirdest interior I’ve seen in a […]
