The House on Sathorn is an innovative new restaurant that combines creative Asian accented cooking by a talented chef in an atmospheric setting in an old colonial mansion. The restaurant, along with its accompanying bar, upstairs club lounge, and outdoor bistro and afternoon tea courtyard, is housed in a 126 year old charming colonial building that has been amongst other things, an elegant hotel and then the Russian Embassy. These days, it has been restored to its former glory, and is the setting for some literally storybook meals. Chef and culinary director Fatih Tutak, a Turk from Istanbul who has worked at the prestigious Bellbrook in Hong Kong, Marina Sands in Singapore, and the 3 Michelin-starred Nihonryori Ryugin in Tokyo, takes memories from his life as a chef and turns them into fun and creative dishes, creating a thorough theatrical dining experience. Take for example, The Hunting. A plate of duck breast with sorrel leaves that is surrounded by pomegranate sauce. The dish is inspired by memories his father-in-law's hunting trips, and the sorrel leaves are positioned to serve as the duck wings, while the pomegranate sauce represents the blood, and the burnt onion powder on the side showing up as the gunpowder. On the Way Home to Silom is a dessert dish featuring fried bananas that was born via Tutak's return trips home along Silom Road, seeing an old fried banana vendor and her customers. Every dish has a story, which is meant to match the history of the beautiful house, which features intricate wood carved stairs, art paintings and photographs, and has a real vintage and timeless feel to it. The restaurant is a welcome new addition to the gourmet Bangkok foodie scene, and both food and decor are worth a night out.
