Thrive Restaurant Review

: Thrive has developed good working relationships with local farmers, so a tomato salad reveals how close the noble vegetable can come to nirvana, and goat cheese-flecked watermelon cubes on arugula makes a standout summer opener. Crispy fried green tomatoes are accompanied by rémoulade sauce, and the lamb sandwich presents thinly sliced, flavorful roast lamb with goat cheese and the aforementioned tomatoes and arugula. Meanwhile, a sushi bar offers traditional rolls along with creations such as the spicy tuna with sesame oil. For dessert, we suggest the molten chocolate cake with a side of berry-topped vanilla ice cream. The wine list ranges from old-world to new-world choices, such as the Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, which pairs well with the pot stickers, and the Allegrini Palazzo della Torre, well suited to any red meat or duck. Sakés are available, too. Happy hour offers $5 small plates and $5 drinks Monday-Friday 4 p.m.-7 p.m.

Great good at Thrive.

I went to Thrive and loved it. The atmosphere was very lively and fun, with hip decor. I started out ordering Chicken Pot Stickers which couldn’t have been done any better. MMmmm! For my main dish I had a few different plates of their sushi. Just by tasting it I could tell that it was freshly made and done perfectly. My whole meal was so delicious. Definitely going back VERY soon!
 
Best Sushi I have had in a long long time

I went to Thrive for dinner with my husband last week. I consider myself a sushi expert and let me tell you - their sushi was so fresh and so delicious. Now there are only about 12 or so different rolls to choose from but the few I had were perfect. My husband had the Halibut and said it was cooked to perfection. Thrive is such a cool place - great music, great bar, easy to get to and park. I just noticed on Gayot that Thrive was voted in their Top 10 Sexy Restaurants - I can see that - it has a Euro Sexy style. The staff was so nice. We will be going back! I can't really think of anything bad about it so I should really give it 5 stars but I think I'm saving my 5 star review for the one that knocks my socks off in an extreme way. :lol:
