From London with Love, Café Wolseley Here to Stay in Bangkok

From London with Love, Café Wolseley Here to Stay in Bangkok - TOP25RESTAURANTS.comBangkok, Thailand, February 25, 2024 / TRAVELINDEX / Café Wolseley, the esteemed Bangkok eatery from London, is proud to announce the transition of its celebrated pop-up at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel into a permanent fixture, following a successful one-year residency. This marks a new chapter in international expansion for The Wolseley Hospitality Group, renowned for its iconic London venues such as The Wolseley and The Delaunay.

Embracing the grand café culture of Europe, Café Wolseley Bangkok marries British elegance with continental flair, presenting a menu that features Wolseley favourites alongside innovative creations. The ambience of the ground-floor restaurant is a thoughtful orchestration of old-world charm and contemporary touches, creating the perfect backdrop to enjoy such signature dishes as the “Prawn & Avocado Cocktail”, king prawns and avocadoes served on shredded gem lettuce, dressed with sauce ‘marie rose’; “The Wolseley Coq au Vin”, marinated chicken braised in red wine and served with pancetta and button mushrooms; “Black Forest Gateaux”, griotte cherry, kirsch & chocolate.

The restaurant’s refreshed a la carte menu opens with a premium seafood selection in which dressed Dorset Crab sits alongside Antonius Oscietra Caviar and an assortment of Fines de Claire and Krystale Oysters. Some starters cater to meat enthusiasts with European staples like Steak Tartare with a spicy relish and Classic Eggs Benedict with York ham, whilst the French brasserie is evoked through Classic Onion Soup and Escargots finished with a dash of Pernod. For lighter fare, guests can try the excellent Yellow-Fin Tuna tartare, Smoked Salmon or Sea Bream Ceviche.

The menu retains many of Café Wolseley’s hero dishes including the twice-cooked Soufflé Suisse with parmesan and classic grill delights ranging from Wagyu rib-eye and cannon of lamb to pork chops. The vegetarian selection has been expanded to include a Wild Mushroom Stroganoff and a rich Cauliflower and Chickpea makhani curry served with mango chutney and chapatis.

When time is of the essence, the ever-changing prix fixe lunch menu (THB 900++ for two courses or THB 1,250++ with dessert) currently presents a refined yet filling selection of Pea Soup with mint and crème fraîche or Smoked Duck Breast Salad, followed by options like grilled Pork Chop or pan-seared Sea Bream, and sweet finishes of Coconut & Lime Sorbet or Chocolate Éclair. Meanwhile, the recently launched Wolseley Afternoon Tea is a classic traditional affair starring a variety of finger sandwiches, homemade scones and cakes, with the option to elevate the experience with a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne. Available daily from 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm, the experience is priced at THB 1,950++ for two, while the Champagne set is THB 4,150++ for two.

Café Wolseley is located in the Parichart Court at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel and is open from Monday to Saturday for lunch from 12.00pm to 2.30pm and Monday to Sunday for dinner from 6.00pm to 10.30pm.
