Cocotte

European - $$$


The former head chef at D'Ark, Jeriko Van Der Wolf, has moved on to become the chef-partner at this new rusticated steak and roast specialist on Sukhumvit Soi 39.  

For somewhere with food so rustic, the dining room is surprisingly dynamic, with a flashy red bar and chrome Philippe Starck stools contrasting with farmhouse knickknacks from canvas bread baskets to cockerel weather vanes. An open-plan kitchen stands at the back of the dining room, dominated by a French rotisserie oven. On one side, there’s a deli kiosk dedicated to more than 15 selections of European cheese and cold cuts. There are also a few seats on the front terrace.  

You’ll want to visit Cocotte with a big group of friends, or at least a big appetite, as the star dishes here revolve around hefty portions of meat and poultry, be it a rotisserie-roasted half chicken (B380), 1.4-kg Australian wagyu tomahawk (B2,990) or Sloane's pork chop (B380), for which the chef adds wood chips to the grill for a heady aroma. If you’re not in the mood for slabs of meat, go for the Crispy Pig (B440), tender-roasted pork belly with honey-beer glaze and caramelized apple, or the barbecued camembert with truffle (B530), served hot with chargrilled bread and a green salad. We’re also impressed by chef Van Der Wolf’s veggie dishes. The yummy Happy Vegetables salad (B360) features 12-15 kinds of Royal Project vegetables, all cooked differently with cabbage vinaigrette. The dessert list covers easy treats like lemon-mint meringue tart (B220) and 70-percent dark chocolate lava with pineapple confit and vanilla ice cream (B220).  

To go with the meat, there’s a large selection of red and white wine (starting at B190 by the glass) as well as Champagne (B490/ a glass of Moet & Chandon) and sparklings. Aside from classic cocktails (B200-220), the bar team can mix up signatures like Cocotte Fuel (B290) which comprises paprika margarita with grapefruit, tequila, magueyes, triple sec, syrup and lime juice served in a mini fuel tank.  

With no shortage of Bangkok places offering massive juicy tomahawks on their menu, Cocotte flies right up there with the best of them. That the veggie sides are no afterthought makes eating here a well-rounded pleasure.
