December is upon us – how did that happen so fast? – and despite the onset of the festive season the number of restaurants opening up in Bangkok continues to grow. There’s no let up to this eatery onslaught, which is great news for foodies as it means there’s always something new and exciting to please every palate. So, as you go about making your Christmas season lunch and dinner plans, we, as Thailand’s leading luxury authority, are more than happy to give you some insider recommendations.
Amongst the selection of what to choose from this December, the biggest buzz surrounds Blue, the new IconSiam restaurant which bears the midas touch of multiple Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse. Another superstar international chef staking a place in Bangkok is Dharshan Munidasa, the man behind Sri Lanka’s infamous Ministry of Crab. Add to that some local talent finding new digs, a great new place for rustic Italian, and an old favourite given a new look, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble deciding where to go for those all-important holiday meals with friends and family.
