New era on Sathorn
Wait is over for Fork & Cork
Creative genius David Shrubsole and his partner Nat have finally opened their attractive Fork & Cork restaurant at the Montien Hotel’s shopping hall. The venue was about to launch when the government imposed its dining restrictions and the duo decided to shut down for a while. Now it’s up and running, and joins David’s group of lively entertainment venues, including the newly launched Circle on Silom 4.
Chef Alain Roux at Le Normanie
Among the most notable developments is the arrival of world-acclaimed Alain Roux, a British Michelin starred chef and member of the famous Roux family, who is here to lead and supervise a new era of Le Normandie, the Mandarin Oriental’s legendary two Michelin star French restaurant, now in its 64th year.
The Bangkok riverside restaurant, which has been renamed Le Normandie by Alain Roux, re-opened at the beginning of December.
Chef Alain is from The Waterside Inn, one of Britain’s leading restaurants and the first outside France to hold three Michelin stars for 25 years.
