Qraft, known for its Peace Oriental Teahouses and croissant shop in Ari, has unveiled its latest venture on top of the 55th floor of the Empire Tower, their first all-day dining spot. 
Their offerings include the bakery and parfait, oriental brunch, and izakaya menu for the evenings. As they’re known for their teas, you have a tea pairing for every dish. Featuring a spacious but minimalistic interior, dark wood furnishings frame the main focus: the panoramic views.
Diners will find an array of sweets with Japanese influences created with a blend of Japanese flours and butters, and the fusion-inspired oriental brunch includes dishes like the Tokyo Ham Mantou Sando, an open-faced sandwich featuring soft mantou bread with ham and strawberries, pomelo, and lychee. 
In the evenings, the izakaya menu focuses on its wood-fired grill, including vegetables, chicken, beef, and seafood. We recommend the A5 Wagyu, the Portobello Mushrooms with grated parmesan, and their wasabi fried chicken. 
The 55th floor of the Empire Tower is now home to also  % Arabica, Invitation Only bar, and Korean fine dining, Onggi. In the coming months, Empire Tower will open restaurants on the 56th-58th floors, such as the Chef's Table, which will be headed by chef Thitid "Ton" Tassanakajohn, Chef Vickey Cheng from the Wing Restaurant in Hong Kong, and two-star Michelin chef Paulo Auraudo. Nobu Hospitality will also introduce Nobu Bangkok, the first and only Nobu restaurant in Thailand and the tallest and largest Nobu restaurant worldwide. 
55/F The Empire Tower, 1 Sathon Rd., 063-192-3119, Open daily 8am-10pm
