Bangkok--14 Nov--The Okura Prestige Bangkok

The management of The Okura Prestige Bangkok is pleased to announce that the hotel's Elements restaurant has been awarded a Michelin Star for the second consecutive year in the second edition of Michelin Guide Thailand, Michelin Guide 2019 Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-nga.

Inspired by the famous Michelin two-star restaurant Ciel Bleu at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam, Elements has developed a reputation for serving finely prepared gourmet French cuisine with seasonal Japanese influences. The restaurant's wide selection of à la carte dishes are refreshed regularly to take full advantage of the freshest available produce from Thailand and carefully selected international markets.

Commenting on the award, Mr. Edward E. Snoeks, General Manager of The Okura Prestige Bangkok, said, "Receiving a Michelin star is a great honour for us. It is the culmination of a fantastic 12 months for Elements, which began with recognition of the restaurant's innovative dining experience featuring French cuisine with Japanese influences. Elements was ranked the 3rd best restaurant in the country by leading luxury lifestyle magazine Thailand Tatler at the Thailand Tatler Best Restaurants Dining Guide Awards 2018 and recently earned a spot in BK Magazine's Top Tables Bangkok 2018 listing. The recognition received from these respected publications reflects our commitment to enhancing the guest's dining experience at Elements based on the spirit of "Kaizen", a key part of the company's Vision & Mission. It is wonderful that Elements has earned a Michelin star for the second year in a row and an affirmation of the skill and commitment of our culinary team in delivering dishes of a consistently high quality."

One of only 22 Bangkok restaurants to receive a Michelin star in the second edition of Michelin Guide Thailand, Michelin Guide 2019 Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-nga, Elements represents new generation lifestyle dining where East meets West with classic ease. The restaurant provides outstanding cuisine in a relaxed and informal atmosphere with the added attraction of an open kitchen that gives diners an up close and personal feel for the skills and expertise of the chefs who create culinary theatre at the very heart of the restaurant.

"Earning a Michelin star is a magnificent accolade for Elements and a testament to the hard work of our culinary team and front-of-house staff," said Chef Alvaro Roa, Hotel's Executive Chef. "We will continue to work closely with Ciel Bleu to share culinary savoir-faire and our entire team will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do."

Elements is open for dinner from 6 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday - Saturday.
About the Michelin Guide

The Michelin Guide came into being in 1889 when brothers Andre and Edouard Michelin founded their world-famous tyre company. To help motorists develop their trips - thereby boosting car and tyre sales in turn - the brothers produced a small red guide filled with handy information for travellers including maps, information on how to change a tyre and where to fill up with fuel. In the 1920s the guide began to list restaurants of special interest and recruited a team of mystery diners – or restaurant inspectors, as they are better known today – to visit and review restaurants anonymously. In 1926 the guide began to award stars to fine dining establishments, initially marking them only with a single star. Five years later, a hierarchy of zero, one, two, and three stars was introduced and in 1936 the criteria for the starred rankings were published. During the rest of 20th century, thanks to its serious and unique approach, the Michelin Guides became best-sellers: the guide now rates over 40,000 establishments in over 24 territories across three continents, and more than 30 million Michelin Guides have been sold worldwide since.
