Le Normandie首先讓人感到舒適的是他的用餐環境,在這裡除了可透過整面落地窗欣賞河景,採光極佳外,還有優雅的大型水晶吊燈、圓桌以及各式高級的餐具,特別是華麗的瓷盤使用特別醒目。

來到 Le Normandie 用餐的賓客,可選擇套餐或單點菜餚,當然,主廚最拿手的就是各式海鮮和肉類菜式。主廚Arnaud從事高級餐飲逾10年,曾與多位世界知名的廚藝大師合作,而且多是米其林餐廳,包括法國沃納斯的Georges Blanc、 位 於 L’Auberge de L’Eridan的 Marc Veyrat餐 廳 , 以 及 位 於Crocodile的Emile Jung餐廳。

他亦曾經在法國勃艮第的Maison Lameloise餐廳工作3年,隨後去到巴黎的Le Crillon餐廳,跟隨名廚Jean-Francois Piège學藝。Arnaud年僅26歲便在法國Château de la Tour du Puits酒店擔當行政總廚,非常年輕便在法國料理的殿堂取得極高的職位。

Le Normandie善用烹飪創意,堅持使用新鮮食材,打造時令、色香味俱全的現代法國菜。有部份食材來自泰國北部地區,以響應皇室發展計劃;亦有部份選自法國主廚Arnaud的家鄉諾曼第和布列塔尼半島。

利用多國食材融入各款精緻菜式:譬如梅乾伴鵝肝配法式起司、慢烤牛柳配松露汁(Chateaubriand),以及燉薯伴牛頰配白松露醬。

「我喜歡使用單一原產地的食材來創造特色菜餚。」Arnaud舉例,如現做的烤布列塔尼龍蝦配泰國當地出產的蕎麥、蘋果、蘋果酒…來烹調。

亞洲最受歡迎的法國餐廳之一,除了有美味精緻的菜餚以外,還有遠近馳名的酒窖,Le Normandie 位於酒店的Author's Lounge5樓,這棟樓擁有百年的歷史,但文華東方酒店維持得很好,讓此餐廳成為優雅的地標,這裡經常有世界各國名流、明星、政壇人士和泰國皇室成員前來光顧。

Le Normandie Bangkok at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel has been touted as the best fine dining restaurant in Bangkok ever since it first opened 40 years ago, a time when the Thai capital couldn’t tell its ambuse-bouches from its entrées. Setting our presumptions aside, there’s no arguing that this ultra-exclusive French food institution has been a pioneer in haute cuisine in Bangkok, serving delectable dishes alongside expertly paired fine wines in one of the most sophisticated settings in Bangkok, overlooking the gorgeous Chao Phraya River.

Walking into the dining room at La Normandie Bangkok, the mature ambiance impresses instantly with crystal chandeliers, plush carpets and the gentle tinkling of the ivories. Chef Arnaud Dunand Sauthier is in the kitchen, one which has welcomed countless Michelin-starred chefs over the years including the likes of Michel Roux and Christian Bau. He explains the restaurant’s meat ingredients are all exclusively sourced from France, telling us “if you don’t have French products, you can’t make French cuisine”.

On our latest visit, lunch with wine pairing left us completely in awe, not only through the intricate flavours delivered to our table each and every time, but also the incredible level of service; this meant Champagne reception on arrival, a comprehensive explanation of the ingredients in each and every course (which was partly served by a waiter who has worked in the restaurant for over 40 years) and wine pairing by a sommelier officially crowned as the best in Thailand.

Rounding off a memorable meal at Le Normandie Bangkok was a Grand Marnier soufflé. After four courses we could barely finish it, providing testament to the fact that portions here are rather more generous in size compared to many of Bangkok’s other aspiring fine dining restaurants, which are often guilty of serving microscopic samples.

his grandfather of fine dining in Bangkok delivers a culinary experience that you won’t forget in a hurry. As for that all-elusive title of ‘the best restaurant in Bangkok’... it’s a definite contender, which considering this is the city’s longest running fine dining restaurant set in the city’s oldest luxury hotel, is quite an achievement in itself.
