Just when you thought the gastronomic world might be safely delivered of its molecularisation along comes another iteration that guarantees work for the manufacturers of dehydrators, sous-vide baths and Pacojets for the foreseeable future. Nestling on the ground floor of Sukhumvit’s Ocean Tower II is Bangkok’s latest paen to spherification, gellification and all things icy, foamed and emulsified – Maverick. Clad in a masculine palette of dark steel and wood, the spacious dining room, open kitchen and slick bar make for a relaxed and inviting backdrop to the technical and culinary wizardry that incorporates everything from molecular tapas and cocktails to simpler coffee and pastries, gastro lunches, a chef’s table and a la carte dining.Choose from various ingredient-themed tapas options like Wagyu skewer with Gorgonzola espuma or creamed cauliflower with puffed buckwheat and pork crackling, or for something a little more substantial the ‘gastro’ lunch menu offers blue swimmer crab salad, corn soup jelly, fried guacamole, fresh apple and radish slaw. The dinner menu goes all out with standouts like smoked duck breast salad with beetroot cream, blood orange gel and beetroot powder, and with over 30 wines by the glass and an array of signature cocktails like the Roselle Bazzle blending vodka and triple-sec with fresh lime and pineapple juice, it is indeed a thoroughly maverick, modern affair.
