Calling all cocoa lovers: a very famous Michelin star-decorated chef is set to open a location of his beloved chocolate workshop right here in Bangkok.
Alain Ducasse’s “La manufacture de chocolat” has grown steadily since the opening of its first boutique in eastern Paris back in 2013. After opening a location in London last year, the ganache and praline mecca is heading to Bangkok. This opening marks the fourth Asian venture for the chef, who already runs establishments in the Tokyo districts of Roppongi and Nihonbashi.
The Thai outpost will be setting up shop in the Athena 23 building close to Central Chidlom, and is the latest project concurrent with the opening of Ducasse’s first restaurant in the Thai capital, set for the last quarter of 2019. Chef Wilfrid Hocquet, who was chosen by the master himself to helm the kitchen of “Blue by Alain Ducasse,” recently posted a list of job openings on social networks. The restaurant will be located in the country’s largest mall at ICONSIAM. The building brings together over 100 restaurants and 7,000 brands, including the country’s first Apple Store — and now, the country’s very first multi-Michelin-starred chocolate workshop, too.
