Fans of Bank Atcharawan and his Thai food can now dine on his cuisine and drink from his wine cellar stocked with bottles that are not only inexpensive but pair well with Thai cuisine. His sexy new restaurant Lamaii is shrouded in delicate dove grays on the chairs, walls, and booths, coupled with dark woods on the tables. Gold chandeliers and lights hang down to give a space an even more intimate feel, while diners can sidle up to a five-seat bar for a drink before dinner.
Atcharawan’s wine list focuses on Riesling, Champagne, and Chablis.
Atcharawan of course was the sommelier at Lotus of Siam, renowned for its stellar list of Rieslings to pair with spicy Thai food, and went on to open Chada Thai & Wine on Decatur and Chada Street with its Thai street fare on Spring Mountain Road. Chada Street closed in late March, followed by Chada Thai in May, but Atchawaran had already moved on from those two restaurants.
