And this one's under B3,000 with free-flow booze.

Bangkok's Sunday gluttons have a new brunch to choose from. Starting May 1, Le Meridien on Surawong Road is launching its "La Dolce Vita" brunch, which translates to a B1,700 free-for-all of French Provencal and Mediterranean dishes with the occasional live Asian cooking station. 

Throw in an extra B700 and you'll get free-flow alcohol (though you'll need to make it B2,355 if you want access to the Bollinger).

The menu covers all the Sunday seafood essentials—oysters, mussels, clams, snails, banana prawns, squid, baby octopus, blue crab, sea almond, razor clams, smoked salmon—on top of a healthy salad corner.

Thanks to a wood-fired oven, you can also get some pretty awesome pizzas, while pastas and noodle dishes are also there to distract you from the cardinal brunch rule—no carbs.

Sushi and sashimi are also on offer, while Teppan Grill sizzles meat and seafood live, together with show dishes such as strawberry risotto, foie gras, scallop tartar, and egg Rossini.

If you can't make it on Sunday, good news is that they offer the same spread for dinner Thu-Sat for a full B600 cheaper (B1,100 per person), or drop by or Lunch Mon through Sat, when it's B900.
