While the French cuisine should be the main reason for coming here, perhaps even more enticing is the entire restaurant itself. L'Appart, hidden from the chaos of crazy Suhkumvit below, is a transported 19th century Parisienne apartment come alive in Bangkok. The open kitchen is light and airy, and even more charming than the well set tables and patterned floors are the various nooks and niches to be found in the adjacent rooms known as "the library." French classics are set on every table, along with newspapers and magazine, plush chairs and sofas, and every space just begs you to make yourself at home. The outdoor terrace is no slouch either, giving dazzling views of Bangkok's night skyline. With the tremendous amount of space they have here, large groups can take an entire room or niche for themselves, with plenty more to spare. Atmosphere aside, you are here for the food, and chef Jeremy Tourret churns out delicacies like steamed snow fish with black ink risotto or pan fried Australian lamb filet rolled in kaddaif, or the wonderful slow cooked chicken breast stuffed with Roquefort cheese and walnuts, and served with garden vegetables from the Royal Project. Needless to say, the accompanying selection of fine wines and champagnes are as good as it gets here in France, er, um, Bangkok.
- Group Friendly: "Good idea to book in advance here, and also make requests for particular tables depending on whether you want to dine al fresco, in the kitchen, or set up in the romantic library nook."
- Best for Group Friendly Because: For some stylish French food in an amazing location, groups should head to L'Appart.
