UPDATE (9/5/2019): Sweet Octopus has expanded its concept to include poke, ramen and empanadas.
The team behind Thai and Sushi EAV is slated to open a new concept in Duluth's Parsons Alley.
Paul Yuwachit will open Sweet Octopus as early as this August at 3559 W. Lawrenceville St., What Now Atlanta reports.
The first floor will feature counter-service Thai-style street food, with a focus on healthy ingredients including quinoa, cauliflower rice and grass-fed beef as well as eco-friendly products including biodegradable straws, plates and utensils.
Entrees, including best sellers from Thai and Sushi EAV’s menu, will top out at $12. The restaurant will also feature a full bar selling sake, beer, wine and cocktails.
Sweet Octopus’ top floor will serve as a bubble tea bar, also offering workstations and snacks. Offerings will include an alcohol-infused boba for guests over 21.
