Time Out says
Rosewood Bangkok’s main dining room combines dramatic art with scrumptious delights
The anticipation was high for the opening of the ultra-luxurious Rosewood Bangkok, and when it finally lifted up the curtain, the hotel didn’t disappoint. Its stylish interiors by acclaimed design firm Celia Chu Design, swanky amenities and seamless service are everything that would appeal to the discerning deep-pocketed travelers.
The luxury hotel is also set to be the new dining destination for avid foodies and drink connoisseurs, offering a gamut of posh and unique food and bar outlets, all of which will be open by this month. The first to be launched isLakorn, an all-day dining room that celebrates theatrical art as well as delicious Western and Thai bites. Lakorn, named after the Thai word for “theatrical performance” is a subtle showcase of artistic and cultural elements—the curtains feature thousands of sharp metal thimbles with intricate carvings, similar to those worn by Thai dancers, while dividers reflect floral bas-relief details inspired by vintage music boxes.
These are set against the restaurant’s elegantly sophisticated marble surfaces, floor-to-ceiling mirrors and earth-toned cushions.The menu, crafted by the chef de cuisine Jarno Robles, highlights dishes as elegant as its surrounds. There’s a burrata salad with heirloom baby carrots and croutons (B480); batter-coated snapper with chips and tartare sauce (B680); and a puffy vol au vent with chicken ragu, green peas and mushroom (B590). Thai dishes are also available if you’re hoping for more local flavors.
The desserts, however, served from a trolley, are the highlight. Executive pastry chef Florian Couteau seems to excel in French indulgences, whipping up an amazing baba au rhum (French rum cake, B360) and a delightful café Liégeois (B360) with coffee ice cream, coffee syrup and crème chantilly.
We recommend dropping by for lunch, which offers a reasonably-priced set, where you can choose one appetizer and one main, for B990.
