Little Beast

French - $$$$


When we arrived; thought we reserved a table inside, we were seated outside on the terrace next to the one lane alley because the place was packed, packed, packed...did I mention the place was packed?  At first we did not mind; but it became too hot and we asked if we can have the first available table inside.  The hostess was charming and very friendly.  She asked us to wait 10 minutes and she got us a table upstairs.

Little Beast is a very small restaurant; so it is very wise to call in advance for a table.   While waiting for our table; we had a quick chat with the lovely hostess about the concept of Little Beast.  In short:  the partners opened Little Beast because they all studied in New York City.  They missed the type of atmosphere and food they used to have in NYC.  So they decided to create that in Bangkok...I think they did a great job with the atmosphere.

The decor of Little Beast is very cool (the photo above is the second floor dinning area).  It is a good mixture of steel & wood.  Very good lighting fixtures that added mood & ambiance.  The dinning furniture is an eclectic mixture of pieces with different colours, textures and sizes...yet all the pieces blend well with the environment.   It is vintage yet modern at the same time.

Start with foie gras terrine topped with parmesan crisp and accompanied by buttery brioche toast. The creamy crab dip is generous with crab meat and balanced well with lemon. Tuna tartar is beautifully presented, although the ginger mayonnaise sauce tends to overpower the flavours. The signature main course wagyu rib-eye tastes every bit as good as it looks, served as it is with a warm salad of sauteed potatoes, earthy mushrooms and watercress. Other main course options include 15-hour slow-cooked lamb shoulder and black truffle and pork cheek penne; both dishes are packed with gutsy flavours. For dessert, entertain your inner child with an ice cream sandwich, whether it is dark chocolate with bitter cherry or snickerdoodle (cinnamon-sugar).
