59 IM is a dynamic newcomer to the Bangkok food scene. The location overflows with character, the story of its historic past cleverly illustrated on its walls. The a la carte menu features a western offering of home-comfort favourites and classics, with premium quality ingredients. The kitchen team talent is evident. In addition to an a la carte menu the dining room also offers weekend breakfast and all-day brunch options, including signature eggs benedict, IM avocado toast and an intriguing take on a breakfast quesadilla with salsa and sour cream. Begin with a “small plate’ of tuna tartare with creamy, herby, green goddess sauce or beetroot cured gravlax with a moreish dill cream. The eclectic dishes are imaginative and well executed. Squid ink aioli accompanying deep-fi-ied calamari is perfectly balanced, as is the smoked togarashi sauce, adding complexity to a relatively humble dish. Main courses delight, with a stunning seafood i-isotto in lobster bisque and a stylish beef cheek bourguignon with baby onions and Paris mushrooms. The IM burger is a winner and a comforting fish and chips with house made tartai-e sauce competes with the best in the city. For dessert choose deconstructed banoffee or a stellar fruity pavlova. A concise wine offering is available plus craft beers, freshly squeezed juices, specialty coffees and teas.
