Review: Modern French at The Reflexions

Updated on June 7 2017

The recently appointed chef Roxanne Lange brings unique interpretations of modern French cuisine to The Reflexions at Plaza Athénée Bangkok. With a newly redesigned menu, The Reflexions lets you enjoy pure, simple flavours in a fine-dining setting. Choose to order à la carte or savour their carefully curated tasting menus.

Concept

With an elegant bar centred in the dining room, The Reflexions is an intimate space with a semi-open kitchen. Stylish, sleek and sophisticated, the restaurant also boasts a petite grand piano which is perched upon a small raised stage near the entrance. Resident classical pianist Jean Francois Yves Lienard regales guests with his live interpretations every night on Wednesday to Saturday, as well as during Sunday brunch hours.

Chef Roxanne Lange at The Reflexions

With over 14 years of experience working in some of Europe’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants, chef Roxanne is no novice in the kitchen. She also spent four years working as a sous chef for the world-renowned chef Henk Savelberg, and developed a refined approach to European cooking. “My cooking focuses on ingredients being as fresh, local, sustainable and organic as possible. I am dedicated to making guests feel happy and special like nowhere else. My aim is to ensure that happens every time,” chef Roxanne explained.

Food and Drinks

The majestic oysters is a prime example of chef Roxanne’s ingenious creations. She incorporates interesting touches, such as curry, green chilli and lime, to the briny oyster dish, creating beautiful contrasting flavours.

The king crab salad also consists of quinoa, edamame, yuzu, chorizo and daikon. The summer salad is perfectly executed, refreshing and brimming with creativity. The quail dish with crispy skin, black currants, Jerusalem artichoke is a definite must-try. To those who love gamey flavours will love this succulent quail drizzled with an earthy quail jus.

The Reflexions has a delightful selection of old and new world wines, available by both the bottle and the glass. To complete your dining experience, enjoy one of their tasting menus with a wine pairing package. Red wine lovers may want to opt for the full-bodied Michel Lynch Bordeaux Merlot 2014, while those who prefer white wine may enjoy the Joseph Faiveley Chablis 2014. Or try their nitro-poached cocktails, which is offered in a variety of different flavours. The addition of nitrogen takes the frozen cocktail to new heights.

Verdict

The Reflexions offers vibrant dishes, live entertainment and first-class services, delivering an outstanding dining experience. We recommend it those who are keen on trying innovative dishes with fresh flavour combinations.
