Tomorrow night (Mar 21) a ton of Bangkok's top French restaurants are holding a simultaneous dinner "to honor the merits of French cuisine." 

It's all part of a global initiative by France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, dubbed Good France (Gout de France), an annual restaurant event that sees over 2,000 French restaurants in more than 150 countries offer oh-so-French set dinners on the same evening. 

Participating restaurants in Bangkok include J’aime, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Water Library Chamchuri, Savelberg, Oskar, Le Normandie, Marcel, L’Appart, La Vie, Vogue Lounge, and Wine Pub.

There are some good deals to be had, too. For instance, a four-course set at Le Normandie is B3,290 (it's usually B4,900 for five courses). Meanwhile, Robuchon's five-course set menu (only B2,450, whereas an evening degustation menu is usually B7,500) comprises the signature apple and beetroot tartare, pumpkin soup, salmon confit, a cheese plate and a dessert plate—just note, they're closed for bookings today.

Water Library Chamchuri features beef cheek Bourguignone as the main for its four-course set (B2,100), while J'aime's four-course offering comes in at B2,399. For a more laid-back experience, visit Marcel, where a five-course menu with foie gras, beef cheeks and cheese sets you back B1,590.

Artworks from Harit Srikhao's "Whitewash" exhibition

On Jun 16, the military visited two galleries near Sathorn, Cartel Artspace and Gallery Ver on Narathiwat Rajanagarindra Soi 22, and ordered Gallery Ver to remove five works relating to the political protests of 2010, as part of Harit Srikhao's Whitewash exhibition. Jirat ‘Tae’ Ratthawongjirakul, 29, has managed the gallery for the past six years, and was there when the raid took place.
