Dinner series The Plate Sale is replacing Georgian Thai pop-up Talat Market at Candler Park’s Gato throughout June. Talat Market chef-owner Parnass Lim Savang, who announced the temporary hiatus on Instagram, is taking the month off to travel to Thailand. Mike and Shyretha Sheats, both formerly of Staplehouse, will fill in during the last three weeks of June with their popular series of a la carte pop-up dinners.
Mike serves as the Plate Sale’s chef while Shyretha serves as its beverage director. The couple host their dinners throughout Atlanta and Athens—where they now live—at restaurants like Octopus Bar, A Mano, and B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue. The Sheats announce each dinner via Instagram.
Dishes range from homey comfort foods such as catfish with hushpuppies and little gem lettuces paired with Creature Comfort beer to flawlessly cooked beef cheeks with potatoes, and dried tomatoes paired with Vina Bujanda crianza wine from Spain.
Eater Atlanta has reached out to the Sheats for more information on their plans for the June dinners at Gato.
Savang, his chef-partner Rod Lassiter, and the Talat team head to Thailand next month to “get inspired and refocused”. The Thai pop-up will be back at Gato throughout July and August before it officially shuts down August 31 to allow Savang and Lassiter to focus on Talat Market’s permanent restaurant in Summerhill.
The restaurant expects to open in early 2019.
