Including Ruamrudee's one-stop Italian destination, another Cocotte spin-off,  "hyper-local" Thai on the 25th floor and a cafe doing “nothing but avocado.”

Gourme Italia

Within minutes of BTS Phloen Chit, Gourme Italia has opened as an Italian restaurant, tapas bar, 200-bottle wine shop and delicatessen, supplying Italian paninis, salads, cold cuts, cheese, pasta, olive oils and other mouthwatering products from the Med. Their rotating set lunch menu changes every three days and will only set you back B390 for three courses—a pasta, such as bacon rigatoni or ricotta and spinach ravioli, a main, such as chicken with artichoke and cream sauce or caprese verticale (buffalo mozzarella with grilled vegetables), and dessert, like tiramisu or homemade apple cake.

Gavin Vongkusolkit, of Glowfish and Kuppa Deli, goes Aussie with his new spot Odtomato, with its warm woods, midnight blues, open kitchen and a live band. Ease in with a complimentary plump tomato served with a simple side of salt, followed by the signature Beef Wellington with prime Ohira beef, or lightly-seared snow fish with cauliflower, garlic chili, and ginger jus. From the well-stocked bar, try the refreshing Blossom with raspberry, elderflower, cava and a hint of citrus, or head to the wine shop at the back of the restaurant.

Oh! Vacoda

This picture-perfect new haven in Ari runs under the concept of “nothing but avocado" and busts out simple dishes with added (read: avocado) surprises, like their pad kaprao with a side of deep-fried avocado encrusted in golden batter or the avocado-bacon pancake topped with a big, fluffy, cloud-like egg. Be sure to check out the dessert section, which sees colorful concoctions like the avocado cheesecake ice-cream sundae and chocolate bundt cake drenched in a thick avocado and dark coco powder ganache.

Lola by Cocotte

Another alluring spot by the people behind Phrom Phong’s flashy, smash-hit bistro, Cocotte, Lola by Cocotte busts out Italian dishes with American twists, creating crossovers that are playful yet comforting. The Cheeseburger pizza comes topped with ground beef, pickles, burger sauce and a generous drizzle of thick cheese sauce, while the satiating XXL Burger “Say Cheese” offers a 600g wagyu patty, bacon, fries and a double helping of cheese. The pasta is the real showstopper, freshly made in-house, with indulgent options like the Cheesy Ravioli with spinach cream, green peas and parmesan. To finish off, satisfy your sweet tooth with a creamy slice of New York berry cheesecake or an ultra-luscious vanilla-infused pannacotta.

Taan bills itself as “hyper-local” in reference to the seasonal ingredients it sources from independent farmers around the country. Executive chef Monthep Kamolsilp, 29, puts firm, juicy brackish prawns from Ranong to use in his twist on choo chee curry with basil-wrapped grilled eggplant. His pad kaprao, made with organic pork from Nan, as well as long beans, torch-ginger and southern budu fish sauce, is a light and delicious, if potentially sacreligious, take on a classic. Try a nine-course dinner set for B1,800/person. Cocktails play to the same Thai-Thai script, and the 25th-floor views are spectacular.

Teppan Niku Kappo

Falling somewhere in between casual izakaya and the higher-end kaiseki, Thonglor’s new teppanyaki/kappo restaurant Teppan Niku Kappo allows diners to enjoy an omakase (B1,200-2,300) experience in a more relaxed setting. Take a seat at the counter surrounding the open kitchen to watch as chefs prepare dishes of snow-aged wagyu and niku (meat) sushi, or head to the outside terrace for a glass of Japanese craft draft beer or one of 50 different types of sake—both priced at B99—with a side of kushi (meat skewers).
