“Waiting For Clara” pop-up restaurant by Sensi Chef Christian Martena and Maitre D’ Clara Del Corso-Martena opens in anticipation for “Clara” grand entrance.
The new culinary venture CLARA will be a celebration of Italian modern cuisine. Now the Martena’s present “Waiting For CLARA” is a temporary pop-up concept and an amuse-bouche to the opening of their permanent restaurant.
The upcoming establishment is set to open in Bangkok’s Yen Akat neighbourhood at the end of September 2019. After going on a regional tour to soak up some new flavours, techniques and inspirations, the symbiotic couple is sticking to its winning recipe: The heartfelt welcomes, genuine hospitality and simple elegance of Clara woven with the palatable passion of Chef Martena’s mastered craft.
The restaurant’s name is a tribute to Chef Martena’s beloved wife, best friend and business partner, gracefully working her magic at the tables and sharing their common passion for haute cuisine with a deep sense of humanity.
The pop-up will be hosted by Partners Great Earth and Allied Metals in the heart of Soi Ruam Rudee, in an intimate setting designed by Bangkok-based interior design group “Toine in Bangkok”. Two large dining table masterpieces signed by acclaimed creator P. Tendercool will sit up to 20 guests from July to August, while waiting for “CLARA”.
Chef Martena will create an innovative seven-course tasting menu, blending his native cuisine with Clara’s French roots in his open-style kitchen. Chef Martena will also use high-quality local produce alongside the carefully selected and premium European imports.
“Waiting For CLARA” is located at 51/2 Soi Ruam Ruedi and will be open from Wednesday to Saturday with three dinner sitting options at 6:30pm, 7:30pm, and 8:30pm.
The seven-course tasting menu is B1,980++ and can be combined with optional half wine pairing for B780++ or a full wine pairing for B1,280++ by person. Wines selection by the bottle is also available.
