Chefs Bo and Dylan offer a traditional approach to Thai food, presented in a contemporary style and served in a charming house-turned-restaurant. 

The buzz: Since 2009, chef couple Duangporn Songvisava and Dylan Jones (“Bo” and “Lan”) have constantly pushed Thai fine dining to uncompromising extremes through untold hours spent researching royal recipes and tracking down rare ingredients. This year, on top of receiving their maiden Michelin star, the long-time proponents of a zero-carbon footprint have thrown their weight behind a series of initiatives dedicated to spreading the good word on sustainability, most notably the {Re} food forum.    
The food: With no a la carte available, groups sign up for a degustation menu where all the dishes are served simultaneously. The sharing experience is akin to a Thai home-cooked meal, but expect something above and beyond your usual comfort food. Bo.lan’s menu changes quarterly based on the freshest seasonal produce sourced both from local farmers and the veggie patch on-site. These combine with complex, labor-intensive techniques for aromatic curries, multi-dimensional salads and fiery stir-fries that both tantalize and challenge. 
The vibe: Taking inspiration from classic Thai residences, the interior of this renovated house comes replete with warm wood furnishings, while dark, multi-dimensional oil paintings of old-school Thai kitchens and covers of vintage Thai funk records lend a cool edge. The warm, family-friendly ambience doused in natural light becomes dim and intimate come nighttime.
