New Restaurant Alert

This Bistro is the next best trend to hit downtown Macon.

Back in May, we learned about the closing of downtown Macon's Lemongrass Thai Bistro. Lemongrass owner Gary Schechterle closed his downtown eatery that anchored the corner alley on Cherry Street for well over 7 years, after Schechterle decided not to renew his lease.  Since then, construction crews have been overhauling and renovating the quaint first floor corner restaurant and we got a chance to sit down today and talk with the new proprietors of La D Da Bistro.

La D Da Bistro is the next best trend to hit downtown Macon. They plan to bring a dining experience that people will be excited to explore and talk about. Their expectations are met only with our desire to be the most enjoyable place to eat and relax like a second home. If you can’t travel to Asia, La D Da Bristro is just down the street.

You’ll be please to know that you will continue to see a familiar face at La D Da Bistro.  The former Lemongrass chef and Bangkok-native, Chef Saravudh "Tom" Sarrtsud, simply known as Chef Tom and his wife Ladda were successful in securing the former Lemongrass space and Chef Tom lovingly re-named the restaurant after his wife Ladda. 

A Bangkok-native, Chef Saravudh "Tom" Sarrtsud took an unconventional path to Thai Cuisine...he was actually trained in French technique and came to learn Thai cooking through his partner and wife, Laddavan. After opening and running their own restaurant in Warner Robins, Tom and Ladda partnered with a local business couple to establish Lemongrass.

The restaurant has been completely renovated from top to bottom and has a great new look.  Chef Tom is finalizing the menu and promised that he will continue to offer his well-known and well-loved Brunch on the weekends.  La D Da will operate Tuesday – Sunday for lunch and dinner and they plan to open the restaurant to the public the first or second week in November.
