Noble Fin seafood restaurant in Peachtree Corners is just the upscale spot the neighborhood needed.
Opening up an upscale restaurant is risky. Opening up an upscale restaurant outside the perimeter in Atlanta is even more risky. But Cliff Bramble’s Noble Fin is thriving in its Peachtree Corners location.
Disclosure: My meal at Noble Fin was complimentary.
The dining space feels comfortable. There are tables and chairs and our booth was spacious enough that multiple dishes didn’t overcrowd us. Don’t you hate it when restaurants try to crowd in as many tables as possible? Plus you can tell that even when Noble Fin is packed you can still carry on a conversation with your table mates without yelling.
Our meal was a chef’s tasting. More and more I’m loving these dinners. No need to look at menu. Chef will simply start sending out items. And Chef Thuan was sent out items I would have never thought to order at Noble Fin myself. I loved the smoked salmon that was served out of plantain chips. How smart! The chips were slightly sweet, balancing out the salmon perfectly. And the lobster Agnolotti? Again, I wouldn’t have thought to order it, simply because pasta dishes tend to be, well, pasta heavy and light on the filling, but not this one. Lobster came through in bite after bite.
Speaking of Chef Thuan, he’s worked at some of the best restaurants in Atlanta including Kevin Rathbun’s restaurants and South City Kitchen. He’s loving his new home at Noble Fin which allows him to flex his talent and bring his roots into his cooking style. Case in point is his spin on Ahi tuna – served with sticky rice and a smoked soy sauce. The smoky touch gives it just a hint of something different that makes it delightful.
At this point, some might have had their fill of seafood from Noble Fin. The good news is that there are four different kinds of steak and a pork chop on the menu too. But I was thrilled with my fried Rainbow Trout (see below). Red Island sea peas, bacon and Calabrian peppers make it a hearty dish. Pictured at the top is the Grouper which was a close second to the trout.
For dessert a sticky toffee pudding was fantastic, albeit, a tad rich after such a hearty meal. If you want something lighter when dining at Noble Fin, get the berry cheesecake.
