Chatrium Grand Bangkok, which blends the timeless grace of Thai culture with the grandeur of international luxury hospitality, has introduced a new era of “French Finesse in the Heart of Siam” with the opening of Casia, the new fine-dining destination that will transport diners’ senses to the chic streets and sunlit shores of the French Riviera.
Casia is an elegant French-Mediterranean restaurant that exudes an atmosphere of style and sophistication, while also feeling relaxed and welcoming. Within this inviting ambience, talented chefs will use imported ingredients from Europe’s leading producers, combined with fresh local delights to craft mouth-watering menus that reflect the beauty of their season.
The culinary team is led by Chef de Cuisine Jerome Bondaz, an award-winning epicurean expert whose stellar career has spanned many Michelin-starred venues in Europe and Asia. Hailing from Évian in the foothills of the French Alps, Chef Jerome has worked with culinary legends such as Santi Santamaria at Can Fabes, the famous multi-Michelin-starred restaurant in Barcelona, and Alain Ducasse at the acclaimed Le Louis XV and Le Grill in Monaco. He is now ready to introduce the essence of the Mediterranean coast to downtown Bangkok.
Chef Jerome’s signature dishes at Casia include Veal Shank, which is slow-cooked overnight, glazed and served with a cocotte of seasonal vegetables (for four people to share), and Bresse Pigeon with carrot layers, stuffed romaine leaves and smoked confit leg.
Alongside the main à la carte offering, a series of tasting menus will transport guests on multi-sensory adventures. Casia will also stage a regular series of culinary events, including collaborations with specialty suppliers, guest chefs and leading wine experts, to further enhance Bangkok’s culinary scene.
“We are delighted to unveil Casia, which is set to become one of Bangkok’s most desirable places to dine and celebrate special occasions. Led by our talented chef Jerome Bondaz, who has worked in top Michelin-starred restaurants, this exceptional venue will showcase the world’s finest ingredients and prepare them with skill and precision to craft plates that look stunning and taste sublime. We look forward to introducing hotel guests and local residents to this new era of ‘French Finesse in the Heart of Siam’ at Casia,” said Daniel Kerr, General Manager, Chatrium Grand Bangkok.
“This is a very exciting moment, as we reveal a truly outstanding fine-dining destination that is unlike anything else currently available in Bangkok. At Casia, we will bring the flavours and fragrances of the French Riviera to Thailand with a handcrafted menu that takes prime produce from responsible local and European suppliers and treats them with love and care to create highly artistic dishes. We look forward to welcoming discerning diners to Casia,” added Chef Jerome Bondaz.
