Koktail handpicks some of our favourite restaurants' new lunch menus. Here are three that we recommend if you think you have worked hard enough to earn a little midweek pat on the back.
Gaston Bistro introduces Le Comptoir du Chef, also known as the Chef’s counter to their menu. With a selection of dishes perfect for casual group sharing, the Chef’s counter encourages sharing of favourite little treats - just like they do in France. Located at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, the restaurant creates an inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a classic Parisian bistro. French chef David Senia works with a medley of quality imported and local ingredients, resulting in hearty bistro fare including a mini wagyu beef burger using Australian Wagyu accompanied by a homemade brioche bun, classic french dishes like duck rillette, traditional croque monsieur and more. The menu also offers French inspired mocktails such as d'Agrumes, Pomme Basilic, and Punch aux Baies along with diverse cocktail selections.
