In a recent survey, Bangkok came out on top of the most visited city in the planet with more than 20 million foreign guests staying overnight per year. Despite the various merits of the capital city, none is championing its fine dining nor is it included in the list of top things to do while in Bangkok. This is slowly changing though because a Bangkok recruitment company recently hired new employees that will work in the dining industry of the country.
One of the most notable openings is that of Chef’s Table which is fine dining restaurant located at the 61st floor of a building in the capital of Thailand. Despite the congested roads in the city, the panoramic view while dining will be worth it because of the windows around the restaurant which are all floor to ceiling.
There are not many fine dining restaurants in the city with an open kitchen concept but for this one the kitchen is at the heart of the dining room. Diners get to witness Vincent Thierry’s culinary magic and they will get a greeting as soon as they pass by his working area.
Chef’s Table is owned by Deepak Ohri who is also the current chief executive of Lebua Hotels & Resorts. The company is currently managing two hotels in the city’s skyscraper with another restaurant called Mezzaluna which was awarded with Michelin two-star for the past two consecutive years since the publication of the guidebook in Thailand.
Thierry was the magic behind the success of George V located in Paris, a 3-star fine dining restaurant, and Hong Kong’s Four Seasons. He is hoping to bring the magic to Bangkok this time around. Ohri, on the other hand, is busy because of three upcoming concepts which he will reveal in the near future. These will be handled by bosses that came from renowned kitchens awarded with Michelin glory.
As this new global trend is sweeping the capital, a Bangkok recruitment company is now busy gathering manpower to fill the demand as the city may soon rise alongside Singapore and Hong Kong when it comes to culinary prowess globally.
