Once we mentioned that travel and food are naturally partners in style, but far fewer people forget to realize to make the connection as food is a true gateway to sensually get in touch with the culture of many countries. In Asia, particularly in Thailand, the land of infectious smiles, there are still so many places whose cuisines, cultures and experiences that might have not yet graced your culinary notebook. The increasing numbers of delectable Thai, palatable Asian, and international cuisines in Thailand articulately predict the direction and evolution of Bangkok’s dining scene and all foodies’ passion for gastronomy very well.
‘New’, ‘Exciting’, and innovatively ‘Changing’ are three rudimentary disciplines and culinary bibles for our consideration before taking time out experiencing what’s going on in the gastronomic side of life at a swanky hotel both in Bangkok and other gate cities in the Asian region. Indubitably, Bangkok is currently loaded with first-rate eateries and pervasively crisscrossed with the presence of universally recognized cafes and dining destinations suitable for all gourmets to explore the distinctive taste.
We recently re-visited the “Red Sky”, a star attraction and exotic dining outlet of Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld Plaza, a modern lifestyle shopping complex on Rama I Road, Bangkok. Actually, it’s not regarded as a new restaurant and it’s also not changing or implementing renovation program so as to sensually meet our culinary bibles as mentioned, but its quality of being exciting and exceptionally awe-inspiring ambience have been still enthralling visitors and diners thoroughly. That should be logical (and visceral) enough for us or you to come back to experience the taste and taste the adorable experience on the sky again.
The atmosphere is subtle, sheer, chic, modern, trendy and more inviting as the subtle red light and dark tone make it more mysterious and charming. Its indoor dining area is very spacious, featuring a long wine bar, dining tables, one exclusive private dining room, and complimented with the enhancing melodies and silky voice of the resident jazz pianist and vocalist.
The exterior is chic and stylish, featuring a sparkling martini bar that is enhanced your mood by LED light and the outstanding giant curve as the background, which make the ambience more inspiring. There is nothing to get the knees shaking and the shoulders shuddering than setting at martini bar table, sipping on one of gorgeous cocktails from their impressive menu, dining al fresco, and enjoying an evening view of the city until midnight.
Outdoor dining area is breezy, comfortable, and relax, and more enjoyable, suitable for laying back having a romantic tête-à-tête, ordering some refreshing drinks, and or even having chat with group of friends.
All savvy food critics and epicures have realized that the “Red Sky” is unforgettably a seafood heaven even if its succulent line up of freshly caught seafood and other prime grade meats might sometime be stolen the scene or overshadowed by its own breathtaking and tantalizing atmosphere that offers guests jaw-dropping view and unparalleled nightscape of Bangkok, helping to well enhance and make your evening break more monumental and sophisticated.
The concept of culinary delights also meticulously reflects the growing interest of people particularly those looking for a balanced healthy lifestyle. The Red Sky is presently offering “Surf & Turf Tower” with emphasize on using fresh and fine ingredients. Such scrumptious and sumptuous concept has noticeably set as the benchmark of the assortment and epicurean feast, exhibiting freshest and blissful choice of seafood and the brilliant range of prime quality meat that all food connoisseurs and seafood aficionados should not miss to make it tonight.
All meals are exquisitely prepared by Chef Alan Wesley Kwan. Included in the luscious “Surf & Turf Tower” are Rib-eye Wagyu, Australian lamb rack, grilled Maine lobster, giant Andaman shrimp, Alaskan crab and Hokkaido scallops all served with fresh seasonal vegetables, double stuffed potatoes and delicious sauces and dips. All are available at Bt5,955++ per couple.
