1919

Dec 6, 2019

By Jeninne Lee St. John

If you’re craving Italian aperitivo with Sunday-session sharing plates, the new eatery from prolific Bangkok restaurant group Foodie Collection is the place to settle in. Named after the year of the Negroni’s invention, the bar mixes seven variations on the theme (you want the Garibaldi Sour and the White Negroni #2, in that order) created by the reigning Campari Bartender champ, Supawit ‘Palm’ Muttarattana, accompanied by the most comforting of food from chef Francesco Deiana. Get the clams in white wine, the wild-boar lasagna, and the lavender, orange and honey lamb chops.
