Ducasse began his career working in restaurants from 16 years of age, trained by a collective of legendary chefs; Michel Guérard, Gaston Lenôtre, Alain Chapel and Roger Vergé. From great mentorship combined with an insatiable passion, Alain Ducasse globally became known as “The World’s most-Michelin-star-winning chef”.

His dinner price tags has also become as famous as himself, his restaurant in Alain Ducasse at Plaza Athénée (Website: https://www.alainducasse-plazaathenee.com/en) in Paris, starts at 150 EUR (≈ 3,600 THB)  to 195 EUR (≈ 6,450 THB) for one single dish. So how does Bangkok fare in the Alain Ducasse pricing equation? Well, the menu at their new branch at ICONLUXE is 4,650 THB per 6 courses menu. A relative steal when compared to what diners in other continents will endure for an authentic Alain Ducasse experience.

Sea Scallops from Hokkaido, Herbs and Salad, Truffled Vinaigrette (Bht 1,150++) is a flavourful starter, a mix of herbs and salad. Scallops are sourced from Hokkaido paired with legumes from local organic farms, topped with truffle dressing. This is the kind of hyper truffle experience, truffle foodies would die for.

Grilled Lobster, Savoy Cabbage, and Gala Apple (Bht 2,250++), this one took a traditional French recipe and we adapted it to make it more contemporary. Usually, seafood often goes with lemon but gala apple provides a unique freshness and sweet note.

All this on top of a fairly stunning view of Chao Phraya River, diners may enjoy a truly fine dining experience, backdropped by Bangkok’s iconic riverside scenery without sacrificing a huge chunk of their savings.
