Arno’s Butcher & Eatery

 

When French butcher Arnaud Carre opened his doors he hit upon an unbeatable recipe: well-cooked steaks at reasonable prices. Diners order in the butcher’s shop next to the restaurant before they are ushered into a dining room that recalls a makeshift French bistro. You no longer need to wait three weeks for a table, but it is still advisable to book ahead.

2090/2 Narathiwas Soi 20, 02-678-8340. Open daily 11:30am-10pm

 

 

Artur Steak

 

After running some very successful hotel restaurants, Artur Kluczewski packed up all his secrets and opened up his own place. The result is a steakhouse that offers tableside carving, high-end beef and hearty sides, but with a personal touch hotels can’t compete with. The meat, too, often outdoes them, thanks to Artur’s unerring eye in selecting only the best produce.

G/F, Bliston Suwan Park Residence, 9 Soi Tonson, Phloen Chit Rd. 02-658-6288, 081-172-7189. Open daily 11:30am-2pm, 6-10pm

 

 

Bull & Bear Steak

 

Center stage in Waldorf Astoria’s suite of lavish dining spaces, this red-blooded steakhouse from New York peddles premium-grade beef with all the trimmings. Steaks, seafood towers and other no-nonsense staples arrive from an open kitchen to beautifully appointed dining booths that sit beneath a quilted Thai-pattern ceiling.

55/F, Waldorf Astoria, 151 Ratchadamri Rd., 02-846-8888. Open daily 5:30-10:30pm

 

 

Cocotte

Sukhumvit’s rusticated steak and rotisserie meats specialist pairs cosmopolitan lounge bar vibes with the comfort of big portion sharing plates and hearty flavors.

Meatlicious

Behind this mid-century, rustic-industrial temple to all-wood-grilled meat stands Gaggan Anand, founder of the three-time Asia’s 50 Best-winning Gaggan. The tomahawk puts its now ubiquitous competition to shame thanks to a crisp, pepper-encrusted char and a heart that is deep red. Last orders 10:30pm.

New York Steakhouse 

 

Onion soup: check. Caesar salad: check. USA prime steak: check, check and check. NY Steakhouse is both old school and superbly satisfying, from the giant headrests on your wingback dining chair to the mirror polish on the tableside salad-mixing bowl. Head chef Kevin B Thomson takes serious pride in maintaining welcoming and flawless standards.

Penthouse Grill

 

The multi-story showpiece steakhouse atop the Park Hyatt goes all out. The interior of walnut woods and marble is stunning. The menu of red meat and seafood jumps straight to the premium stuff. The cocktails hit the price-to-quality sweet spot. This is prime date-night material.

34-36/F, Park Hyatt, 88 Wireless Rd., 02-011-7480. Open daily noon-2pm, 6-10:30pm

 

 

Tables Grill

 

Grill room or French fine-dining restaurant? We’ll hedge our bets and say both, because while head chef Hans Zahner (who led the team at Shanghai’s Sir Elly’s to its first Michelin star) has introduced both tasting menu and a la carte dishes whose elegance is unrivaled, Tables still retains some seriously meaty appeal. We’re not just talking about the succulent USA prime or Aussie M6 wagyu tenderloin, either. Its rich wood dining room and tan leather upholstery was just made for steak dinners, though we’d advise you leave room for Zahner’s king crab soup and oyster with lemongrass jelly, as well. 

M/F, Grand Hyatt Erawan, 494 Ratchadamri Rd., 02-254-6250. Open daily 6-10pm; Sun 11am-3pm
