Set in So Sofitel Bangkok, what's billed as the capital's first true urban design hotel, Bangkok restaurant Park Society carries on the theme with wonky mirrored walls and intimately lit interiors. But the real visual attraction is streamed through the full-length windows -- a battalion of tall buildings held back by the verdant sprawl that is Lumpini Park.
The menu has heavy hints of French gastronomy. Items change daily depending on the harvest of the day. Dictate your desires at the chef's table, or let chef Paul Smart take the reigns with the monthly tasting menu. If you're really looking to impress, you can flash the cash for a pre-dinner sundowner up at the private cabanas -- named "Hi-So" in reference to the Thai term for high society -- one floor up.
