The recent opening of the highly anticipated Penthouse Bar + Grill atop the glistening Park Hyatt Bangkok hotel caused quite a stir a few months ago for its stunning interior, delicious food and unbeatable views. Now, the venue has opened its doors for lunch service and is unveiling a delicious new set-lunch and a la carte menu.

The three-floor entertainment complex consists of a grill restaurant, several bars and a rooftop terrace with a range of expertly made drinks at wallet-friendly prices. There’s also a pretty decent list of rotating DJs that hit the decks every night to the backdrop of Bangkok’s glistening lights.

The beating heart of the space is obviously The Grill restaurant, which serves up prime slabs of premium meat prepared with finesse and samurai-like precision. This isn’t pretentious fine dining, just quality, honest food that’s well prepared.

Available from 12-2:30pm each day, the restaurant’s new set lunch includes some of the world's most recognizable gourmet dishes (B990/two courses, B1290/three courses) and a la carte options.

Start things off by dipping into a classic onion soup with caramelized onions and comte cheese, or try the Ultimate Detox Red Salad with beetroot, roasted bell peppers, cabbage and tomato. Another classic, the beef tartar, comes with cornichons (tiny French pickles) and a series of condiments.

The restaurant’s commitment to quality produce really starts to shine when it comes to main entrees. Dive into a mushroom pappardelle (king oysters, mushrooms, arugula and parmesan) or keep things light and healthy, but no less flavorsome, with the chicken Viennoise salad (rocket leaves, lemon, sage and chicken). Penthouse’s Prime Burger (succulent beef, bacon, cheddar and rich tartar) offers a homey, filling option for those with extra appetites.

If you are the type of person who likes to cap things off with something succulent and rich, try the tangy caramelized lemon tart with marinated blueberries and creamy caramel on top. There is also a delicious vanilla soft serve with chocolate sauce and a ritzy strawberry Romanoff sundae.

With its elegant décor and intricate design high above Bangkok, it’s hard to think of a better place to ascend for a delicious lunchtime feast—lined with plush gold, leather, marble and leafage fusions.
