Being handed our food in takeout containers tends to signal that we should GTFO of a restaurant as quickly as possible. But the casually chic interior of Tyde Tate’s downtown location has such good vibes we can’t just grab and go. Crisp white walls, homey wooden tables, and large wicker lighting fixtures combine with splashes of calming dark teal mosaics on the bar. It all adds up to the preferable backdrop to slurp down their perfectly peanuty Pad Thai. Their dishes are reliably tasty—we're fans of the fried rice and panang curry beef with a nice kick. And portions are decent-sized so the takeout container thing really works out in our favor. If more places like Tyde Tate start showing out, downtown Atlanta is primed to rise up.
