STAGE, is a casual fine dining French & global-inspired restaurant from Chef Jay Sangsingkaew and her highly talented brigade of ex-L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Located in Ekamai Road, they have opened their doors to discerning guests since November 2019.
Jay is a connoisseur at heart, having travelled the world in search of good food and drinks. She is also French culinary-trained, culminating in her role as one of the opening team of the highly-acclaimed L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Bangkok (and the only Thai person to have been trained at its original 2 Michelin stars outpost in Paris). This was where she had worked alongside fellow passionate kitchen team members. Since then, they have gone their separate ways, but always have the idea of a possible dream reunion. STAGE (pronounced ‘Sa-Targe’ – meaning ‘apprentice’ in French) is a ‘stage’for such a comeback.
While STAGE’s approach to cuisine is French, that is, precise cooking and deep respect to ingredients used, Jay is also inspired by techniques and tastes from around the world including incorporating premium Asian produce into the menu. The dishes are aesthetically minimal French – understated yet possessing intricate details that go into each dish. Some of their signature dishes for this season includes: Furano Wagyu Hokkaido A5, Truffle Hot Dog, and Red Mullet / Young Bamboo.
Located in a quaint alley in the heart of Ekamai, guests enter another world once they open STAGE’s door.
