QUINCE

Business Traveler (USA) - - INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS -

One of the trendi­est spots in town for win­ing and din­ing, Quince is a panMediter­ranean restau­rant housed in what is said to be a 1950s Sukhumvit home. In­side, how­ever, it feels more like you’re in a for­mer ware­house space, the ex­posed pipes, iron beams and tall win­dows cre­at­ing a dis­tinctly in­dus­trial feel. The menu is di­vided into “small,” (ta­pas) “sal­ads, veg­eta­bles, grains and the like,” and“some­thing more sub­stan­tial.” The al­bondi­gas lamb meat­balls in cumin and

tomato with pick­led chili (THB150/$5) served as a very good start to our meal, and the con­fit pork belly with sriracha coleslaw and olive pow­der (THB400/ $12.50) was sim­ply sin­ful. My hand-cut noo­dles with seafood, tomato ragu, chili and basil was a sur­pris­ing com­bi­na­tion, (THB380/$12) well done both in fla­vor and tex­ture. But the best thing about this place is the at­mos­phere – it’s lively and urbane. Cock­tails are also a strong suit. Open 11.30am-1am; Sukhumvit Soi 45; tel +66 2 662 4478; quince­bangkok.com
