Thrive, Atlanta, GA

Thrive Restaurant Review

: Thrive fills a glowing contemporary space in Centennial Tower, one of Atlanta's downtown high-rise office buildings. Now serving in a consulting capacity, former executive chef Justin Cox keeps the restaurant in touch with local farmers. So the farm-to-table veggie plate relies on locally produced goods. Georgia strawberries team up with goat cheese for a summer salad. Crispy fried green tomatoes are accompanied by a Thousand Island sauce, and shrimp and grits draw on locally produced stone-ground grits. Georgia’s Springer Mountain birds define the fried chicken, which even turns up in a sushi roll. The sushi bar offers traditional rolls along with creations such as the spicy tuna with sesame oil. Desserts are fairly standard, such as vanilla crème brûlée. The wine list is relatively uninspired, but the local craft beers are amply supplied. Happy hour offers $5 small plates and $5 drinks Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-7 p.m. This is a good spot for post-performance or post-game repasts.

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:
