FEATURE OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2017

Dining with a View

DINING WITH A VIEW

This month we take a look at real high cuisine, with five restaurants on the roof or the top floor of five hotels. We visit the venue that sparked the rooftop dining scene, we look at a venue overlooking Lumpini Park and serving European food, and another that blends the good-time atmosphere of wine bar and serving French Food & Steaks along with sky-high views up and down Silom Road. We went to the only Chinese top-floor restaurant in town, and to the granddaddy of them all, which serves Michelin-quality cuisine in an atmosphere of Rolls-Royce splendour.
