New York gourmet food and beverage brand Dean & Deluca joins with Italian premium beer Peroni in introducing a new outdoor hangout in front of MahaNakhon building, a mixed-use high-rise billed as Thailand’s tallest tower.

Called Dean & Deluca Festive Patio, the area is adorned in festive greenery with hanging ivy plants and lush shrubs. Fairy lights cast a whimsical glow over the 10 tables and 60 seat where patrons can unwind with light snacks and thirst-quenching refreshments. Kick off with Crab Rangoon Bruschetta (Bt195), Crispy Fried Calamari (Bt165), savoury Mixed Sausage Platter (Bt225), juicy Italian Meatballs (Bt165), and assorted Cheese & Charcuterie Platter, for which diners mix and match their own favourites from Stilton and Red Leicester to Comte Doux and Gruyere.

The charcuterie selections include Bresaola, Culatello, Black Forest Speck, Iberico and many more. For something heavier, there’s also a selection of pizza, including Parma Ham with Rocket, Seafood and Sausage Lover, all at Bt125 per slice. What’s more, the Holiday Turkey Plate (Bt595) can also be enjoyed out on the patio. 

The delicacies are best washed down with a glass of Peroni Nastro Azzurro draft beer, offering a clean and crisp taste with subtle citrus notes, balanced aroma, and pale golden colour. It is available in 0.5 litre (Bt175) and 1 litre (Bt330) glasses. For wine lovers, Dean & Deluca’s private red and white wines are also available. Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia features a luscious and round taste with notes of blackcurrant and berries, while Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand boasts fresh flavours of passion fruit and citrus. Both are priced at Bt195 per glass. And for those who can’t resist the bubbly, Festive Patio also has Follador Prosecco Treviso (Bt245 per glass), a fine sparkling wine with a fruity and flowery scent. 

The Festive Patio is open weekdays 5 to 11pm and on weekends also from 11am to 2pm. It continues through January 2.
