Bangkok’s most perennially lauded Champagne brunch is alive and well this New Year’s Day. For 5,900++ Baht, enjoy a range of premium seafood, imported lamb and wagyu, a seemingly endless variety of cheeses and charcuterie, foie gras cooked fresh in front of you and so much more.
The icing on the cake, of course, is the free-flow Taittinger Rosé and Brut served at Anantara Siam. The folks here truly spare no punches.
Tables Grill at Grand Hyatt Erawan
Tables Grill serves one of the finest Champagne brunches in Bangkok, and on New Year’s Day, the tradition continues. The live cooking stations are the main attraction here. From sous-vide guinea fowl and a variety of eggs Benedict to Boston lobster thermidor and truffle risotto, the selection of dishes is outstanding. Paired with Moët & Chandon Champagne, the experience is taken to another level.
On New Year’s Day, enjoy the Champagne brunch at Tables Grill for 3,999++ Baht per adult from 11am until 3pm.
Up & Above at the Okura Prestige
Complemented by one of the best views in Bangkok, the Champagne New Year’s Day brunch at Up & Above offers oysters, sashimi, Boston lobster, prime rib, pasta, a huge selection of French cheeses and more desserts than one person should be able to consume in one sitting. It also includes free-flow Jacquesson Cuvée 738.
Expect to pay 4,900++ Baht per person for brunch with Champagne.
Espresso at the InterContinental Hotel Bangkok
On New Year’s Day, Espresso is serving another fantastic brunch, featuring pan-fried foie gras, wagyu prime rib, fresh oysters and then some. With Champagne added to the package, expect to pay around 5,000 Baht in total.
The Peninsula Bangkok
The Peninsula Bangkok’s Sunday at the Pen brunch offers a premium selection of dishes from some of the hotel’s other outlets – Mei Jiang, Thiptara and River Cafe & Terrace – including fresh seafood and some truly decadent desserts.
Add a bottle of Louis Roederer for two or upgrade to a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal for two persons. For the latter, the brunch is priced at 5,300++ per person.
Viu at The St. Regis
The Sunday brunch at Viu is legendary, and it’s the perfect way to start the new year off with a bang. Lick any wounds that may need nursing with a pre-brunch session at The St. Regis Bar from 12.30pm until 1.30pm, and then tuck into an impressive spread that includes free-range French chicken, foie gras, scrambled eggs with black truffle and a caviar station. With free-flow Veuve Clicquot, the brunch is priced at 6,900++ Baht per person.
Rain Tree Café at Plaza Athenee
An old favourite returned this year, as Rain Tree Café reopened with a revamped Sunday brunch. Peking duck, seafood on ice, dim sum, caviar, king crab, desserts from every nation under the sun – the buffet is well-stocked, to say the least.
With Moët & Chandon added to the brunch, expect to pay around 6,000 Baht.
Voilà! at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit
The aptly named Veuve Clicquot Sunday Brunch ticks all the boxes: fine French cuisine served à la minute, a stunning setting, premium Champagne. From Fine de Claires and French foie gras to the signature “fromagerie” and freshly made pastries, this brunch will wipe away any head-rattling aftereffects from the previous night.
With free-flow Champagne, the price is set at 4,750 Baht per person.
Brasserie Europa at Siam Kempinski
The “longest Sunday brunch” in Bangkok does indeed last a while – until 5pm, in fact – so if you wake up later than usual, you can still make it to the brunch, even if it’s hard to call a meal so late in the day a brunch. Semantics aside, the spread is full of fresh seafood, and guests can order from a robust à la carte menu that features New Zealand lamb and Australian beef tenderloin, among other choice cuts. Round it all out with free-flow Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne NV for an excellent start to the new year.
Expect to pay around 4,000 Baht for brunch with Champagne.
