Rare, Beautiful, Approachable

Rare Michelin-calibre modern French cuisine paired with “floral cuisine” is the cornerstone of Signature Bangkok’s culinary philosophy.  Envisioned as a “journey of discovery”, the seasonal menus tell the story of each ingredient, highlighting terroir, or sense of place, and guide guests in connecting with nature and culture through gastronomy. 

Signature Bangkok’s culinary team is led by former 2-Michelin star Chef Thierry Drapeau, whose legendary restaurant in the Loire Valley held 2-Michelin star status for nine consecutive years. “Floral cuisine” is an extension of Chef Thierry’s “cuisine of the soil” philosophy, an approach rooted in using the purest and best ingredients to express the flavours of the land and sea. Instead of focusing on spices, Chef Thierry compliments his plates with the delicate flavours of the region’s beautiful edible flowers and herbs. The floral and herbal notes add brightness and natural aromatics to Chef Thierry’s light, jus-based French style cooking, leading to a delightful concentration of flavours.

Guests begin their culinary journey in Signature Bangkok’s plush, velvet draped, live piano lounge where they are greeted with expertly-prepared aperitifs and sparkling wine paired with canapés.  In a graceful, contemporary  dining room overlooking Bangkok’s spectacular skyline, the main meal unfolds with a choice of a 3- and 5-course Chef’s Menu, with organic vegan options available nightly.

Guided by “it’s your stage, it’s your show” ethos, Signature Bangkok engages guests in the dining experience. During the meal, the opening of a velvet curtain reveals the entire culinary team preparing the meal in an open kitchen.  It is a rare window into the orchestra of movements that shape Michelin-calibre meals. The culinary team are on hand to guide guests with surprise, theatrical tableside visits between courses, further enhancing the dining experience

Signature Bangkok’s cellar features spectacular vintages from around the world, including a robust collection of biodynamic wines from small-scale vintners. Wine pairings are offered with each menu, although diners may select their own wines from the cellar with guidance from our sommelier.

Signature Bangkok is located on the 11th floor of VIE Hotel Bangkok, a cool, cosmopolitan 5-star luxury hotel in the heart of the city. The dining room soars above Bangkok skyline, offering panoramic views of one of Asia’s most exciting cities. Art deco interiors, plush velvet textiles, luxe carpets and a bold color palette evoke classic elegance, while the floor to ceiling glass windows and burnished bronze fittings keep the mood hip and modern.

We invite you to step through the velvet curtains and enjoy a rare and relaxed culinary experience that pays tribute to land, sea and delicate power of flowers.

 

“I want to present a sensual, provocative gastronomic journey of discovery, from the fields in France to the flowers of Asia. “

~ Thierry Drapeau

A native of France’s Loire Valley, former 2-MIchelin star Chef Thierry Drapeau has long been hailed as a pioneer of gastronomy in the region. Much like the concept of terroir in winemaking, Chef Thierry’s cuisine reflects the soul and source of each ingredient, connecting the land and sea to the table. His cuisine is rooted in the memory and nostalgia of rare ingredients and relaxed meals shared among friends.
