From in-demand Italian restaurants to a buzzing steakhouse and a new Greek player. 

100 Mahaseth

This partnership between chef Chalee Kader (Surface, Holy Moly) and Randy Noprapa (Fillets) has brought nose-to-tail dining back to Bangkok by serving uncompromised Isaan staples in a space that’s right at home on hipster Charoenkrung. Tuck into rice noodles with pig’s brain, a beautifully rich tom kee lek hang wua (ox tail braised in herb stock and cassia leaves) and some of the best pork crackling we’ve ever tasted. It all comes served alongside a buzzing, high-society crowd.

Aesop’s

Greek restaurant Aesop’s conjures an ouzo-fueled party atmosphere. This next-gen rebirth of a family-run restaurant from Sydney serves hearty Greek classics like eight-hour lamb shoulder, chicken souvlaki and moussaka (think beef lasagna with eggplant in place of pasta sheets) in a hall made for big, boisterous gatherings. After dinner, the place transforms into a dance floor where guests are encouraged to hurl crockery, as is Greek tradition, to a soundtrack of “Zorba’s Dance.”

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

The experience at L’Atelier remains nothing short of exceptional thanks to the consistency of Head chef Olivier Limousin. Not only are the dots of cauliflower cream in your Imperial caviar in lobster jelly as exquisitely realized as at every other L’Atelier in the world, there’s also a surprising wholesomeness to much of L’Atelier’s menu. A whole dover sole is pan-fried in butter then plated with nothing more than a wedge of lemon, some beans and a side of mashed potato.

Blue Elephant

The flagship branch of the globally-known Thai restaurant brand is housed in a stunning colonial-style mansion with a classic interior of dark rattan furnishings and authentic Asian artifacts. Chef and owner Nooror Somany Steppe and her team serve up royal Thai cuisine with authentic flavor. While more modern Thai restaurants have lately grabbed most column inches, Blue Elephant is still worth a visit for both atmosphere and food.

Bunker

Defying convenient culinary categorization, this stylish eatery hidden behind a Brutalist concrete facade produces season-driven dishes that play with both Western and Southeast Asian flavors. Arnie Marcella, a native New Yorker, drives a kitchen that excels in foodie-wowing ingredients such as scallops with green strawberries and the foie gras dumplings, while drinks are augmented by Wareewan Yodkamol’s inventions—reason enough why the city’s fashionable still pack the stone-and-copper-touched dining room.

La Casa Nostra

A wine cellar that’s the envy of the town meets rustic-yet-refined Italian cuisine at this stately old home in Sathorn. Chef Nino Scognamillo gives nods to his hometown of Sicily in produce-driven dishes that brim with home comforts: best-of-the best imported cold cuts, wholesome pastas and wickedly good grilled meats. It’s little wonder a spot on the cozy outdoor terrace (complete with petanque court) can be hard to come by.

Di Farina

If you venture onto Sathorn Soi 12, you will now be greeted by the tantalizing smell of delicious wood-fired pizza exuding from Di Farina Pizzeria. Amidst Florentine decor, you can take a front-row seat at the open pizza-making station, where upscale Italian flavors are given a Thai twist. If you want to chill to the dulcet tones of a live jazz band, be sure to book a table on Friday or Saturday nights.

il Fumo

While you’ll still find some of Europe’s most-prized beef cuts dry-aing in the showpiece chiller, Il Fumo has moved from upmarket steak-house to purveyor of fine-dining tasting menus. Head chef Nelson Amorim brings the food culture of his native Portugal into dishes like kokotxa (the fatty underpart of a cod’s jaw) in a carbonara sauce, while all the grilling takes place on open flames using house-made charcoal. Being from the Vesper team, the cocktails are exceptional.

The Meatchop

Sala Daeng's carnivore heaven serves premium steak, tasty tapas bites and cocktails in a deli store concept. An open kitchen, patterned black tiling, pink walls and rattan chairs lend it a swanky yet fun feel. For serious grill dishes, prime cut steaks include Black Angus from Australia's Rangers Valley, oven-baked Chiang Rai chicken and Australian lamb chops. Smaller plates like the platter of jamon Iberico and serrano are perfect to nibble on while sipping on a classic cocktail.

Opus

There is a reason why this stylish restaurant has remained such a consistently popular hotspot for the city’s corporate movers and shakers. Owner and wine expert Alex Morabito—formerly of Vino di Zanotti—ensures the house-turned-eatery retains a homey feel with its leather seats and light, glass-fronted facade. The kitchen, too, serves reliably solid traditional Italian cooking. The star of the show, however, is the more than 400 Italian wines.

Praya Kitchen

Gai Ob Phu Kao Fai might be familiar to anyone who was in Bangkok during the 1980s. It’s a whole spit-roast chicken, doused in Mekhong whiskey and set alight tableside—basically the tomahawk steak of its day. It’s also the signature at the new Marriott Surawongse hotel’s Praya Kitchen, where head chef Attapol “X” Naito Thangthong aims to bring back the forgotten kitsch classic. His other creations include fried oyster fritters with chili sauce and a crabmeat-loaded Southern tumeric curry, served in a vast, open-kitchen space that far surpasses the hotel-all-day-dining benchmark with its huge, original art motifs replicated from temple murals.

Sensi Restaurant

Everything about Sensi is on an exceptional level, from the humble and approachable service to the beautifully plated food with the occasional flourish. Opt for the generous a la carte portions or—and we highly recommend this option—the five-or-eight-course tasting menus. Either way, you’ll get to sample some incredible produce.

Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant

Not many wine bistros straddle the line between quality and affordability quite so effortlessly. Sweeping, 37th-floor views of lower Silom and the river set the tone for well-executed comfort food, from bang-for-baht pasta dishes up to some of the finest cuts of meat around. Those views call for a big, bold cabernet sauvignon to match.

Via Maris

There’s only one thing that remains the same at this North-Africa-meets-Mediterranean restaurant as when it traded as Vesper: Sicilian-born head chef Francesco Deiana. Now though he plays with flavors drawn from North Africa, Spain and Southern Italy—carrots roasted in cumin and harrisa, lamb shoulder tajine, balls of sumac-spiced crabmeat. The dining room’s explosion of turquoise, orange and vibrant tiles ensures a fun time.

Yao (Marriott Surawongse)

 

Situated atop the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse, this rooftop bar offers impressive panoramic views, encompassing the Chao Phraya river, the historic Old Town and, of course, Bangkok’s glittering high rises. The decor takes a contemporary Shanghainese twist, incorporating carved oriental screens, abstract sculptures and Chinese ceramics for a sleek aesthetic. The food, too, takes a contemporary Chinese route with the likes of Sichuan-style fried chicken and roasted duck with melon and mango.
