New York inspired steak house in the heart of Bangkok
On the 55th floor of Ratchaprasong’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel is a splendid, New York inspired steak house with a breath taking view of Bangkok.
Bull & Bear is inspired by the legendary steak house of the same name at the Waldorf Astoria New York, famous for serving arguably the world’s best steaks. As with the original, the strength of Bull & Bear Bangkok lies in the selection of high quality ingredients by the experienced Chef, who then turns them into grilled, roasted or smoked dishes for you to enjoy.
The restaurant’s name is taken from the location of the original restaurant in New York, which is near Wall Street, New York’s financial district. ‘Bull’ and ‘bear’ are slang terms among stock traders for days when the stock market value rises or falls significantly.
The restaurant’s decoration is the work of leading New York design firm, AvroKO and features feathers, snakeskin and woodwork to create an opulence with a Thai flair. The ceiling, panelled in bright red hand-woven mudmee cloth, enhances the already splendid dining room atmosphere after sunset. Customers are delighted by the choice of colours used at this steak house which are accentuated by the soft and lively light of the chandelier, with its 800 pieces of hand-made blown glass.
Imported beef and fresh seafood are prepared on a customised grill imported from Australia which can grill and smoke at the same time. The open kitchen allows guests to see how the experienced chefs skilfully create their dishes.
BBQ Caesar Salad, Tiger Prawn Cocktail , Smoked Salmon Tartare are all good choices for a starter. For mains, there is a big selection of premium meat dishes, including Wagyu Prime Rib, New York Strip Steak, Wagyu Ribeye, and Bone in Ribeye Australian Wagyu 55-days dry-aged. The menu also offers pork, chicken, and seafood dishes.
For your drink, Bull & Bear serves smoky-themed cocktails such as Bull & Bear Smoked Kiwi, Burned Martini and Waldorf Smoked Old Fashioned. A range of wines is also on the menu.
Don’t forget to round off your wonderful dinner with Bull & Bear’s rich gelato.
