lebua Hotels and Resorts is thrilled to announce Mezzaluna, its’ flagship restaurant, headed by Chef de Cuisine Ryuki Kawasaki, was awarded two MICHELIN stars in the first selection of the MICHELIN guide Bangkok. The MICHELIN guide’s two stars have propelled Mezzaluna and Chef Ryuki to the center of the international culinary stage and have cemented Mezzaluna’s status as one of Asia’s premiere destination restaurants.  Mezzaluna, one of only three Bangkok restaurants to obtain two stars, is described by the MICHELIN guide Bangkok as, “…on the 65th floor of the lebua Hotel, seemingly suspended in the clouds, the chef (Ryuki Kawasaki) and his team deliver European delights executed with Japanese precision in five- and seven-course set menus.”

Chef Ryuki said of the honor, “To be to be awarded two MICHELIN stars is truly incredible. I am proud and deeply humbled by the recognition from the MICHELIN guide. I cannot say enough about my team at Mezzaluna and the support we’ve received from lebua. They’ve encouraged me to indulge my culinary imagination and build the experience that is Mezzaluna.”

For Mezzaluna Chef Ryuki has created an experiential menu that beautifully showcases how his Japanese heritage has informed his French culinary training. Using the best, locally-sourced, organic Thai ingredients, as well as premium ingredients imported from around the world exclusively for Mezzaluna, Chef Ryuki is able to create exclusive dishes, like his signature Murakami beef entrée, that no other restaurant in Thailand offers.

“lebua Hotels and Resorts is proud to have nurtured the talent of Chef Ryuki and to have earned the recognition of the MICHELIN guide. Mezzaluna is spectacular restaurant and now the world knows it. With the arrival of the Michelin guide, Bangkok, already the number one tourist destination in the world, is poised to become the leading culinary destination internationally as well,” said Deepak Ohri, CEO of lebua Hotels and Resorts

The first selection for the MICHELIN guide Bangkok featured a total of 98 restaurants and highlights Bangkok’s balance of embracing international cuisines without abandoning its own heritage and authentic cuisine – which draws millions of visitors worldwide. Only three restaurants earned two stars, 14 restaurants earned one star and no restaurants earned three stars. This year’s selection also featured 35 restaurants awarded the Bib Gourmand.
