Thrive Restaurant Review: Chef Justin Cox is passionate about his 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 a rémoulade-like sauce, and the lamb sandwich presents thinly sliced, flavorful roast lamb with goat cheese and the aforementioned tomatoes and arugula. Southern fried chicken relies on Georgia’s Springer Mountain birds for its impact. 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 warm liquid center. 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.-6 p.m. But also check out all-you-can-eat sushi specials starting at 7 p.m. selected days. This is a good spot for post-performance or post-game repasts.
