Romantic dinner with a stunning river view
Stylish, sultry, and sensual, Attitude Rooftop Bar & Restaurant will have you hungry for love come February 14th. Specializing in modern cuisine, this romantic restaurant is taking Valentine’s Day dinner to new heights, with sparkling city views, champagne, and delicious seafood specialties.
Located atop the Avani Riverside Bangkok Hotel—just a 15-minute shuttle boat ride down the Chao Phraya River from the Saphan Taksin pier—and situated 26 floors above the city, Attitude offers unparalleled views of the river and the city skyline in the distance. Being located downriver also gives it the added benefit of being somewhat removed from the city, transporting you away from bustling Bangkok for the night.
Spread across the hotel’s rooftop area, with differing moods and styles all along its length, Attitude is comprised of: the Infinity Pool Deck; The Green; the Outdoor Bar; the Champagne Bar; and the Dining Room. Playful white wicker tables and chairs grace the Outdoor Bar area, where cool breezes keep things comfortable. Inside, low-hanging glass ball chandeliers in the Champagne Bar, and ornate chandeliers made of wicker baskets in the Dining Room, elegantly bring the East and West together. Meanwhile, gold trimmings, warm woods, and plush velvet and leather chairs add a modern-day minimalist sophistication.
Helming the kitchen is Australian-native Chef de Cuisine Andrew Cole, who has specially crafted a Valentine’s seafood platter filled with the foods of love and paired with a bottle of critically acclaimed Billecart Salmon—described by wine expert James Suckling as one of his “favourite champagnes across the board”.
A starter of fresh oysters served on a bed of sea salt and topped with Beluga caviar whets the appetite nicely. The sweetness from the oysters hits the palette first, soon followed by the salty taste of the sea from the sea salt. For mains, a feast from the sea is presented in the form of two platters, one hot and one cold. The cold platter presents a fusion of Thai and Western cooking, and highlights include a layered beef, seared eel, and avocado tartare topped with Salmon roe and a raw egg hidden inside the beef layer—giving the meat a creamy, rich texture. There’s also sweet Thai lobster and avocado salad, a seared black cod and avocado salad topped with crunch pork crackling, and crab croquettes served on a bed of sweetcorn salad. The hot platter, by contrast, comprises both seared and grilled seafood dishes including Maine lobster, Thai tiger prawns, Hokkaido scallops topped with edible gold leaf, Scottish salmon, black cod, and tuna.
A glistening sugar heart, filled with raspberry mousse and accompanied with raspberry sorbet and fresh berries, makes for a beautiful and light after-dinner treat for you and your special someone. The full meal is priced at B9,999++ per couple, inclusive of one bottle of Billecart Salmon champagne. For reservations, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
