A Jeff Ramsey-powered restaurant that redefines kaiseki cuisine
When it comes to Japanese fare in Bangkok, there's so much to choose from, from casual mall eateries to swanky omakase joints. But establishments that promise mind-blowing cuisine on a more progressive front are quite rare.
But we can thank Jeff Ramsey for filling up the gap with Kintsugi, the upscale Japanese restaurant at The Athenee. Opened in 2019, the restaurant has consistently appeased dining connoisseurs with modern dishes that break the boundaries of traditional Japanese cooking.
The design of Kintsugi Bangkok by Jeff Ramsey evokes the style of a sleekly modern Japanese restaurant, combining a pure minimalist aesthetic with rustic elements in the furnishings, clusters of hanging lamps, and strong vertical lines in the semi-transparent screens. In this styling, the traditional heritage of Japanese dining is brought into the modern world without losing its classic form. The preparation kitchen and serving counter are to one side, with seating, while tables and two private rooms provide other seating options.
