The delectable food at Fireplace Grill and bar was incredible; every dish is distinctive and memorable.
Start with Amuse Bouche (Chef’s Complimentary dish; the dish changes daily)
We enjoyed the Chef's creation a “24 hours slow-cooked short ribs with red wine sauce and mashed potato.” Succulent!
Our 2 dishes of appetizers we order escargot serve along with potato puree garlic butter sauce 950++ thb
and another dish we go with pan-roasted foie gras serve with rocket salad and raspberry reduction 950++ thb
We tried the Maine Lobster bisque soup 480++thb and Mushroom soup 420++ thb
Our main dishes North Atlantic Lobsters (Maine USA.) 2,100++ thb The Lobster is sweet by itself it’s totally divine.
Toyosu Market sea bass (Tokyo Japan) 1,600 ++ thb
both for the Sea grill selection, we love the Lemon butter and Garlic butter sauce perfection to eat with Sea bass & Lobster!
Another amazing dish you’ve shouldn’t miss is BEEF; imported beef from Queensland Australia.
“Stockyard Beef Tenderloin gold 200 days” 1,900++ thb The dainty Beef is tender and juicy cooked perfectly well. The perfect combination serves along with baby carrot and peppercorn sauce
We enjoyed seeing the Chef prepare cooking in the open kitchen with charcoal over an open flame.
We had a wonderful time, as usual. The wine was perfect with our beef and the food here is simply spectacular. We fell in love with this silky and balanced red wine “Domain d'Enfants L’Enfant perdu, Southwest France 2015”
