There's a private room for 24, along with a dark wood bar. There are no photos of snow capped mountains, no cookoo clocks or yodelling here. Two quirky painted "paper-mache cows' heads gaze down from their settings on the back wall, a nod apparently to a famous Zurich festival. For an appetizer, capuns, Swiss chard dumplings with bacon, onions, and cheese in a cream sauce are a house speciality popular with the locals. Others may prefer the pan-fried goose liver with raspberry vinegar. Thomas Nowak, the owner and chef, cooks according to the market, so chances are an item will be featured on the menu for a week or so before disappearing. There are many dishes on the menu that exemplify modern Swis cuisine while nearby cultures are incorporated into the cuisine. The gourmet raclette features raclette cheese, cervelat sausages and vegetables. Other choices include; Bundnertella (imported air-dried beef with bacon and ham), veal with pan-fried potatoes, onions, and bacon and Chateaubriand, minimum of 2 persons, this beef tenderloin is served with a bearnaise sauce and fresh vegetables. From the dessert menu there is Schokoladen Mousse (chocolate mousse) with whippd cream and grated Toblerone chocolate - but you could also try a Swiss favorite, deep-fried apple rings in beer batter or the popular Swiss chocolate fondue with assorted fresh fruits.9.Giusto bangkokitalian restaurant & grillSoi Sukhumvit 23Klongtoey, Wattana Bangkok Tel: (66-2) 258-4321Open: Lunch: 11:30AM - 2:00PMDinner: 6:00PM - 10:30PMLarge windows surrounded by a garden give the restaurant an open-air feeling. Arriving by car offers a fairly large parking area or if disembarking at the Asok BTS skytrain station then it's but a 6 minute walk to the restaurant. There is a path that leads to the front door where you're politely greeted and escorted to either the bar or your table. The interior eminates a warmth as the walls and ceiling are painted a light-chocolate brown with a textured floor design. There are a few pictures on the walls keeping the overall concept for the restaurant simple, yet elegant. There is also a private function room that accommodates 16 persons.As my two dining partners and I were escorted to the main dining-room we walked past large windows that allow patrons to view the kitchen where Fabio, the executive chef, and one of the three owners of this restaurant, stands cooking at the grill while giving instruction as a conductor might do over a seasoned orchestra. Covered in perfectly starched linen, our comfortably spaced table sat next to a window. We received nods and smiles on our way in, plus a greeting from Renzo, the second of the trio of owners. People dining here not only seem to be enjoying their food but its apparent they are enjoying the experience as well.We relaxed momentarily and then that frustrating moment …choosing the right wine. Selection? One of the most comprehensive in Bangkok as the choice of Italian red wine alone is vast. There are hundreds of wines from Italy, France, and Spain plus a serious selection of new world wine. I must have had a confused look on my face as Giulio, the manager and third of the three owners appeared, offering his assistance. I mentioned my preference to be a full flavored red wine yet my fiance and her friend prefer a fruity white wine. Giulio explained they offer numerous selections by the glass which would allow each of us to select different wines with our food. Great idea!The menu is more than a list of inticing dishes, devised ingeniously to stave off boredom with separate categories, each taking on a life of their own with items on the menu sounding more like delectable art pieces than cuisine, making it that much harder to select. I started with the "Parma Ham" as my appetizer; sliced air dried parma ham with imported cantaloupe while the ladies each had an order of the "Fresh Tuna" ...hand sliced with a zucchini & shrimp salad in a lemon dressing. For the main course, my fiance chose the "Black Spaghetti with Rock Lobster", having a brandy cream sauce, it reflects the simplicity that defines Italian food at its best. Her friend Jan chose the "Angus Beef Fillet with Mushroom Sauce", slowly cooked over the charcoal grill and deliciously tender while I selected the the "Seafood Skewer". A visual treat, this charcoal grill specialty is a tiger prawn & giant scallop skewer wrapped in pork colonnate lard with mustard sauce served with a mixed salad. Each dish was a delectable assortment of the spirit of Italian dining. Next up, dessert of course. I had the "Tiramisu" which was served in a large martini glass with mascarpone chesse mousse, coffee & amaretto liqueur that was hypnotic. The ladies chose to share "Millefoglie"; served with beautiful imported fresh raspberries. We finished with a Barolo Grappa and were more than impressed with Giusto. If you love quality Italian, then you'll also find Giusto is the "right" choice.10.Dalat (Le)Extensive Vietnamese menu47/1 Sukhumvit Soi 23Bangkok, Bangkok10110Tel +66 2 260 1849 / +66 2 258 4192Open 11a-2:30p & 6p-10p M-SuLe Dalat is a Vietnamese restaurant located in the business district of Sukhumvit.
