The Krug and Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame Champagne 5-Course Dinner Menu
When it opened in November 1958, the Tower Wing, now known as the Garden Wing, was regarded as an architectural masterpiece as it was one of Thailand’s tallest buildings. Atop the building was Le Normandie Grill, a long, opulent room featuring a Norman-style chimney-piece topped by two rampant lions, the emblem of Normandie. The restaurant underwent a complete transformation in 1969 to become Le Normandie, Bangkok’s first fine-dining restaurant. In 2015, Le Normandie was rejuvenated with a contemporary interpretation of its original grandeur. The new interior preserves the classic elegance of one of Asia’s best-loved French restaurants, together with striking new features such as handcrafted chandeliers. A new wine cellar featuring top selections of both Old and New World wines, a customised dessert trolley and Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s legendary tableside service complete this fine-dining experience, highlighted by the impeccable service and elegant ambiance that is Le Normandie.
