A very warm welcome and an abbraccio* to locale vol. 1, the first edition of About Eatery’s educative tasting menu series!
Centered around our kitchen bar, where you can watch your dishes being prepared and talk with our team, the aim of this series is to not only celebrate the diversity and quality of locally-grown ingredients but, importantly, to also share and discuss the stories of the people and lands behind them.
In doing so, we seek to also build towards our vision to become Bangkok’s unparalleled ‘locale’ for seekers of quality foods, drinks and knowledge. We hope that you enjoy our menu – and welcome you to our locale.
Chef Gabriele Tozza Luna
