Bangkok's gastronomic scene is getting more luxurious, fun and... well... maybe I shouldn't say this... confidential.
Recently, JW Marriott Bangkok's New York Steakhouse was turned into a secret dining venue to offer the city's first Sunday brunch with a deliberately "non-culinary" theme.
To celebrate its 12th anniversary, the much-loved Steakhouse is bringing diners back to the enigmatic mood of Prohibition era New York. Dubbed "The Secret Society Brunch", the weekend feast (supposedly only known among a small circle of discerning gourmands) is inspired by the US ban on alcohol from 1919 to 1933. The fine-dining restaurant, which opens for lunch on Sundays only to guests with a "secret entry code", is decked out as a private saloon where fine wines can be enjoyed surreptitiously alongside the steakhouse's long-treasured fare.
Here's how it works, should you be interested in joining. First, when you call in for a reservation you'll receive a secret code. Upon arrival at the steakhouse's closed door, a "paperboy" will be standing there waiting for the password. Saying something like "Are you open?" or "We've already made a reservation" won't get you in, so you better get it right.
Once you've passed that hurdle, you'll be escorted to the reception area. A lovely, retro-style corner is there and you can pose for pictures while waiting for the table.
It will be held every Sunday from now on. Reservations are a must. But make sure you remember the secret code.
