Le Normandie Bangkok
Imaginative French cuisine
You could say that Le Normandie Bangkok is one of the most popular hangout corners for chefs around the world…it is therefore no wonder that this is one of the best fine-dining experiences in the city. Aside from its stunning menu and impeccable service, Le Normandie welcomes Thai High Society and international business leaders to dine in a magnificent setting beside the Chao Phraya River. Enter the kitchen and you will notice its culinary influences drawn from French tradition- start with the selection of matured French cheeses and don’t leave before you try the venison tenderloin with pumpkin, fig and chestnut.

Created by Eneko Atxa Spain’s youngest recipient of 3 Michelin stars, Aziamendi is a Basque-meets-Thailand paradise for globe-trotting foodies. It doesn’t take long to notice the unique design and architecture of A-cero- the undulating timber waves on the ceiling, for example, symbolise the beauty of the Andaman Sea. Their cutting edge menu includes dishes such as The Garden – an array of baby vegetables in a ‘garden’ surrounded by a tomato emulsion and beetroot soil with smoky foie gras ashes. However, if you prefer to stick to Axta’s Basque roots, book a lunchtime table to enjoy a selection of gastronomic pintxos and the Kokotxas al Pil Pil (hake chin). Coming in a close second behind Ibiza’s Sublimotion restaurant, Aziamendi’s menu remains the second most expensive in the world at B50,000 a head (€1,279)…
