Scarlett simply amazes, both for its dazzling city views, with sweeping panoramas of Bangkok's Central Business District, the Chao Phraya River, and all the skyscrapers across town from each side of the 37th floor eatery. You have your choice of sitting outdoors on the terrace facing the river, or indoors where the best tables are surrounded by large glass windows and overlook all of the city center. While anyone wanting to impress friends, a date, or have a laid back business meeting will be a winner here, make sure you are hungry, as the food is just as spectacular as the cityscape. The cuisine is French bistro fare, and depending on appetite, you can go as simple as a charcuterie platter of imported meats and cheeses, paired with a vast selection of French wines, or else go for a dry aged Australian wagyu steak, Kobe wine beef, or fresh seafood entree. Besides the fantastic choice of meats, menu highlights include Le Crabe Royal de Alaska, which has Alaskan king crab all dressed up with Dijon mustard, avocado, and mango, or the L'Os a Moelle bone marrow served with shallots and black pepper. Despite feeling like a fancy place, the number of affordable wines by the glass makes it worth coming in even if you're full, and the wine cellar is truly astounding, with one of Bangkok's best selections of French wines, along with plenty of other New World vintages. The helpful manager navigates between diners to suggest the best pairings, and it's hard to choose what to pay attention to, as yours is most likely divided up between the mouthwatering delicacies in front of you and the bright lights far below.
