lan is presently one of les enfant terribles of Thai food in Bangkok, in fine company with Nahm and Soul Food Mahanakorn, that have changed the way that (some) Thais think about their food.
Alice Waters began to refine how Americans thought about seasonality and it's affect on eating habits; Bo and Dylan are attempting a similar conversation with Thailand.
It's unclear if this is the start of a movement towards more thoughtful eating in the Kingdom but it's a delicious statement, either way. lan's open-air dining room is lush — there's no other apt description for its smooth, early 60s-inspired tropical design.
There are two eating options at lan, a la carte and a set menu. The set menu is the way to go, especially if you are not already a Thai food expert; the kitchen will guide you through a feast that includes the five traditional courses in a Thai meal. Excellent wine choices are available to pair. Highly recommended.
A la carte 210 - 580 baht, set menu 1,680 baht per person.
