Last month saw the grand opening of Alex Brasserie, an innovative French-style eating and drinking hotspot set in a 600 sq.m industrial loft style space on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Inspired by French art-de-vivre, the venue features indoor and outdoor seating—offering about 170 seats, as well as majestic bar that overlooks the central room—and is being managed by French chef Arnaud Drouville (most recently the Executive Chef at Morimoto). His new menu goes from vibrant French cuisine to creative fusion, with an array of interesting dishes. Don’t miss his beef short ribs, which consists of a 1.5kg piece of juicy red meat slowly vacuum cooked for 48 hours. The bar, meanwhile, tempts tipplers with signatures cocktails and sensibly priced spirits, while nightly DJs keep thing rocking.
