Housed in an office building in the busy Asok district, Maverick Restaurant and Bar is on the cutting edge of nouvelle Bangkok eateries. The traditions here follow the molecular masters Ferran Adrià (El Bulli), Hervé This and Heston Blumenthal (The Fat Duck), and take things to new gastronomic heights. The wildly eclectic tapas menu is a real standout and if you have a group, a 25 tapas tasting menu is definitely the way to go, featuring everything from pop shrimp with wasabi mayonnaise to caviar oil and chorizo, or Spanish tortilla that comes as foam, with rosemary potatoes and ham, or Catalan foie gras served with yuzu and figs. The dinner menu is just as exciting. Try rack of lamb with saffron and fennel or duck confit with sauteed porcini mushrooms, or Chateaubriand in a bearnaise sauce, you get the picture of what's up here. There are also Chef's Table evenings, where just 12 diners get seated with the master chefs who explain techniques and whip out exquisite molecular meals, with ten course dinners going for 3500 baht, also available with wine pairings. Exotics included here feature dishes like Pigs Can Fly (Kurobuta suckling pig, yuzu and lemon pillow, with velvet peach) or Beef Cubism (Miyazaki grain fed Wagyu beef braised for 14 hours made with beetroot powder, blue cheese marshmallow, and beef glaze). There are several chefs in operation here, some of whom have Michelin star pedigree, and in addition to the elegant dinners and executive gastro lunches, they also find time to do artisan breads and pastries, ice cream, and specialty coffees. With such a luxurious array to choose from, there ought to be a niche for everyone to find satisfaction at Maverick Restaurant and Bar.
