Fine-dining on the Pearl of the Andaman isn’t just for tourists anymore thanks to a slew of big openings in Phuket just this month. Following Trisara’s new farm-to-table restaurant, Pru, and Zuma’s pop-up at Anantara, comes Esenzi (www.esenzirestaurant.com).
 
The ultra-luxurious design hotel Iniala Beach House (076-451-456, www.iniala.com) has partnered with Tim Butler of Bangkok’s Eat Me (No.23 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016, No.7 in BK's Top Tables 2016) to open this new seafood venture.
 
The first Butler restaurant outside of Bangkok replaces the property’s old restaurant, Aziamendi, with seafood dishes that pluck flavors from all around the world. A5 marbled wagyu beef from Shiga prefecture comes served with swordfish belly in red curry, while the Dutch Harbor king crab salad features heirloom tomatoes, basil sorbet and bloody Mary.
 
For the full experience, go with the eight-course tasting menu at B8,000 or B12,500 with wine pairing.
