A new seafood destination in the Lawrenceville area opened its doors to the public on Tuesday.

Parkside District held a reservation-only soft opening last week to prepare for its full opening. The restaurant’s location at 909 Parkside Walk Lane in Lawrenceville is located off Duluth Highway, just west of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in the building that once housed Digger’s.

The menu by executive chief Paul Thai includes appetizers, such as mussels, Salmon poke, charred octopus, New England Clam Chowder, a crab cake melt, chicken and sausage gumbo, crawfish, Fish N’ Chips, chicken tenders, entree and side salads, a tomahawk pork chop, country fried veal, blackened redfish etoufee, shrimp and grits and General Paul’s Salmon.

The restaurant will also have an oyster bar.

The restaurant’s website,, shows it will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays through Thursdays, and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
