Wasabi’s menu is a massive meld of traditional Japanese sensations and tasty Thai creations. Tako su (steamed octopus, $5.95) and yaki ebi (shrimp teriyaki skewers, $4.50) bait anxious appetites before reeling them in for a main course of tuna, salmon, and shrimp nigiri (two pieces, $3.75–$3.95). Try one of Wasabi’s chef-special rolls, such as the Midnight Fantasy, with shrimp, crab, tuna, yellow tail, seaweed salad, and fish egg ($12.95), or fall back on old favorites, such as the california ($4.20) and rainbow ($7.95) rolls. Palates will experience a flavor implosion from the Dynamite Roll's deep-fried salmon, crab, and asparagus ($6.20). The Rock 'n' Roll packs a mouthwatering wallop of shrimp tempura, fish egg, cream cheese, and crab, similar to pressing your tongue against a stack of Marshall amps ($5.50). Pad thai (tofu or chicken, $7.65; beef or shrimp, $7.95) and kaeng phet curry ($11–$15) are nice for a bit of spice, and pineapple fried rice ($8.95–$9.95) and sweet-and-sour chicken or shrimp ($11) satisfy mellower Thai cravings.

Layering flavors is a delicate enterprise that requires patience and practice, both of which the kitchen staff at Spice Market has in spades. Chef-Owner Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Chef De Cuisine Shean Suter use the streets of Southeast Asia as the inspiration for their menu, which celebrates experimental combinations such as the ginger, scallion, and tarragon that come together to flavor steamed halibut, and the kumquat-lemongrass dressing that tops char-grilled chicken. They also use these original twists to elevate Asian traditions, such as salmon sashimi topped with a chipotle emulsion and edamame flavored with yuzu butter and mace salt. Like its cuisine, Spice Market’s dining room comprises eclectic elements that fuse together, creating something sophisticated within the W Atlanta Midtown. Gilded ropes, slatted woodwork, and oversized paper lanterns hang from the ceiling, and pots of bamboo and tall vases filled with colorful flowers line the walls. Whether seated at private booths or snoring upon padded banquettes in the bar area, diners sip one of seven signature cocktails including a passion fruit whiskey fizz and a lychee-raspberry bellini.

Under the glow of lotus-shaped white chandeliers, plumes of steam ascend from aromatic Thai dishes laden with lemongrass, coconut milk, and tangy tamarind paste. The menu showcases a traditional spread of curries, noodle dishes, and grilled fish and meat entrees. The authenticity and tastiness of the recipes won praise in 2010 from the Cynical Cook, who called the thai beef jerky "addictive" and the chicken larb "everything you could want ? Each bite was juicy, meaty, and a satisfying mixture of peppers, limes, and salt." Thai statues and artwork dot the dining room, which opens to a white-curtained patio available during warm months to feed hungry breezes.

Within the cozy confines of Thai & Sushi's scarlet-walled eatery, taste buds can surf the fusion of flavors surging through a menu teeming with traditional Thai dishes and Japanese-style sushi platters. Tuna, salmon, shrimp, crab, and masago snuggle in a blanket of avocado and soy nori bedded down in the pineapple-slathered Hawaiian roll ($11.95). Olympic-medaled vegetable rolls lithely springboard from a platform of cucumber, avocado, asparagus, inari, and shiitake mushrooms into awaiting mouth caverns ($8) and pad thai chicken roosts in a spicy nest of rice noodles ($9.75). The sweet aroma of fresh ginger mingles with the sizzling serenade of chicken, beef, or pork and a garden-torn quartet of onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, and expatriated lawn gnomes ($9.95).
