The addition of new luxury hotels also signifies the entry of a new set of world-class dining options. Gourmands are awaiting service at Capella’s Côte by Mauro Colagreco, a new fine-dining destination that’s expected to give Blue by Alain Ducasse on the opposite side of the river a run for its money. Colagreco has been enjoying the culinary limelight as the main man behind Mirazur, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in France that took home the top spot in the list of World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2019. At Côte, the Argentinian chef will be delivering sumptuous and innovative creations that marry French and Italian Riviera influences.
The majestic Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok refuses to be left behind. Renowned chef David Thompson will be opening the fine-dining Thai restaurant Mahanathi, his first restaurant project in Bangkok since his departure from Nahm.
Meanwhile, famed modern Cantonese eatery Mott32 will also make its home in Bangkok at the hotel incarnation of the elegant train service.
Outside of the hotel circuit, Chef Dan Bark, who found fame at casual fine-dining spot Upstairs at Mikkeller, will be opening his own restaurant called Cadence by Dan Bark, while former 80/20 chef Andrew Martin will be delivering his own take on Thai cuisine at a soon-to-be-announced project.
