Robuchon, Le Normandie, J'aime and more celebrate their Frenchness with a simultaneous dinner.
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.
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.
