Simply the best Italian Restaurant in Bangkok. A Rustic industrial space. A novel setting for enjoying vibrant and powerful Abruzzo regional cuisine.
Evoking a neo-industrial opulence warmed by exotic, homely woods, Medici Italian Restaurant Bangkok is the heart of the award winning Bangkok Boutique Hotel, Hotel Muse Bangkok. The restaurant, Bangkok’s most beautiful subterranean eatery, was inspired by the transition of European luxury and culture to King Rama V-era Asia, and the marriage of sophisticated elegance and homely charm.
Continuing the hotel’s main theme of discovery via a series of archways, the restaurant eschews modernity in favour of an analogue human touch. The overall concept was to create a vast wine cellar; oak floor is left unsealed to breath, emphasising the fresh and raw properties of authentic Liscia food ingredients; the open kitchen connects guests with the source of culinary imagination, amidst brick, rod iron, wooden casks, a barbeque spit, silk lanterns and the artistic splendour of its private ‘Caterina’ and ‘Lorenzo’ dining areas.
