Just a few steps away from Asok intersection, down the small Sukhumvit Soi 14, lies a century-old teak house with a lush tropical garden. It's not a Thai restaurant if you're thinking about treating your palate to exotic Thai cuisine. In fact, this newly opened 300-seater that occupies a historic Thai villa is one of the city's most talked about American gastro bars of the moment.
Heavily invested in and passionately renovated, Hemingway's is a dining complex where fine American cuisine is combined with an American sport tavern, Caribbean cocktail bar and Cuban cigar room under one inspiring concept to honour the legendary American author Ernest Hemingway.
The venue, which previously housed Los Cabos Mexican restaurant, went through a major facelift, and now boasts a Hemingway-inspired atmosphere through various zones, including Key West Cafe, Safari Sports Bar, Habana cocktail and cigar bar, Hideaway living room and the Spanish garden _ all to denote the residences and exuberant lifestyle of the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning author from 1920-1950.
The food also depicts Hemingway's enthusiasm for gastronomy and his appetite for the finer things in life (fresh oysters, French cheese and premium spirits). Although most dishes have been reinvented according to recipes from Hemingway's cookbook, Wayne Morris, an Irish chef from Australia who directs the restaurant's kitchen, has added his artistic and innovative touch to the long-cherished dishes.
