Following the lavish opening bash, the world's 40th Park Hyatt hotel is now ready to unveil its first dining space that looks to draw the posh hotel guests and local fine diners to experience one of the city's most innovative seafood-heavy creations.
Nestled beside the hotel lobby lounge (named Living Room), Embassy Room is excelled uber-stylishly in modern sophistication: limestone floow, minimal-design armchairs and Oriental-inspired ornaments (such as Chinese lanterns with a modern kick) — together it feels like you're dining at the café at the New York's Guggenheim Museum, but with the unparallelled views of Bangkok greenery through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Besides serving up breakfast to hotel guests, you can expect beautifully-plated lunch and dinner dedicated to Western-style seafood dishes that exemplarily integrate Asian ingredients. Each selection is available in two options: "to enjoy" which is enough for a couple to share and "to share" which can feed a party of four.
The signature Tasmanian smoked salmon dish is a sheer delight, making use of imported orange fish but is locally smaled for freshneww, seasoned with lime juice and colorfully drizzled with topping bits like egg crumbs, salmon roe and Thai flowers (B410/B1,025). The baby squids are intensified by flavorful chorizo and the zesty note from the capsicum sauce (B400/B1,000). The heftier risotto is undoubtedly the highlight, featuring meaty lobsters doused in the indulgent rice cream that balances well with pickled shimeji mushroom (B950/B2,375).
There is also a selection of non-seafood like Chiang Rai-sourced pork belly served with caramelized pineapple and intense-flavored mashed pumpkin on the side.
With the price you pay, the ambiance and the execution of the dishes, this kind of hotel restaurant is what you'll actually keep coming again and again.
