Dan Bark, Executive Chef and owner of Upstairs Mikkeller Bangkok devoted over 15 years of his career behind the culinary scene. He had worked his way up through some of the finest restaurants in Chicago. Falling in love with Mikkeller’s identity and philosophy, Dan has partnered up with Mikkeller Bangkok to introduce a concept of delicate food and craft beer pairing to the city of Bangkok – Upstairs Restaurant, where he was awarded 1 Michelin star in 2018 and 2019. His cuisine is best described as Progressive American, which each dish is a mix-and-match approach to techniques and ingredients unbound by geography with no limits in flavor combination.
There's a serene sophistication to chef Dan Bark's intimately scaled chef's table restaurant above the Danish craft beer bar Mikkeller. While the dining room keeps things Nordically simple—walls are a subtle, cool mint, lighting is bright yet inviting—the tasting menu bursts with impactful and labor-intense flavors.
