Atlanta’s Atlantic station might be the place to meet with friends or family this season, but it’s also a great place to cross some things off of your to-do list while basking in some holiday cheer. The open-air holiday shops at Atlantic station offer everything from stocking stuffers like jewelry and handcrafted soaps to fine art for your home. There are wine tastings, lunch specials, happy hours, and DJs among the festivities. Stay for the snowfall, weekdays at 7:30 and weekends 6-9 hourly. If you’re lucky you might even get a photo op with Santa any weekend through Dec.24th.
Thai dining- at its highest level- is easily found at Nan Thai Fine Dining. Outside, the tone is set with an eye-catching gold statue right at the corner of Spring and 17th Street, minutes from Atlantic Station and the Woodruff Arts Center. Inside, it doesn’t stop. Elegantly appointed sculptures and art compliment the sleek and sophisticated room full of bamboo touches; even the bathroom is a calming oasis.
Equally impressive is the distinctive and flavorful food by Chef Nan Niyomkul, who co-owns Nan with her husband Charlie. The Pla Muk Thod, affectionately known as “fire calamari,” is an appetizer must. Pla Sahm Lod, the Chilean sea bass done in a three-flavor chili sauce, is a satisfying entrée. It’s not cheap like most Thai places, but it’s very well worth the expense.
Business is fine, but Nan works even better for romance. Its many admirers include Tiger Woods and family friends Vijay Singh and his wife Ardena. Singh is such a devotee that his love prompted a 2005 Sports Illustrated article about the Niyomkuls and their food, so it’s certainly cuisine worthy of any Master.
