French gastronome Manuel Martinez will be back at Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant of Pullman Bangkok Hotel G from August 28 to September 1.

Martinez – also the creator of Scarlett’s very first menu – will take back the reins at one of Bangkok’s most popular rooftop wine and restaurant and treat diners to an exquisite new menu that showcases the very best of French ingredients. 

Sourcing inspiration from his roots, his passion for Farm-to-Table dining and of course the DNA of Scarlett, the French chef has crafted an exclusive a la carte menu, and a truly memorable tasting menu for culinary enthusiasts. 

The chef and owner of historic Paris restaurant Le Relais Louis XIII, and holder of the prestigious “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” title (“Best Craftsmen of France” recognition award), Martinez is an acknowledged master of French cuisine. As the creative force behind Scarlett’s original menu launch in 2012, the talented chef was the key ingredient behind the restaurant’s success and continues to be a strong influence and inspiration. 

Highlights from the menu include an entree of organic tomato stuffed with Alaskan king crab, vegetable croquant and confit tomato pulp topped with extra virgin olive oil, a main of Brittany scallop mousse served with Bouchot mussels mariniere emulsion, and smoked herring caviar, tender braised veal sweetbread served with girolles mushrooms, and a trolley of irresistible desserts like Saint Honore cake and the classic Paris-Brest.

Martinez’s dishes are available both in an a la carte menu and a 3-course degustation carte blanche (chef’s tasting menu) at Bt3,500-plus.

Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant is open daily from 6pm to 1am. For reservations, call (02) 352 4000, (096) 860 7990 or email scarlettbkk@randblab.com.
