In this edition of The Weekend Edit, we get a taste of Bangkok by way of the Fish Cheeks team's new Thai spot in New York City, get the scoop on Miami’s new Kappo-style omakase outpost from restaurateur and art dealer Alvaro Perez Miranda, and dote on one of the culinary world’s most thrilling trends: next-gen Asian restaurants.
Bangkok Supper Club in Three Dishes
When The New York Times food czar Pete Wells deemed Bangkok Supper Club a much-coveted “Critic’s Pick” recently, he shined a spotlight on what we already knew. It’s good. Really, really good. The restaurant was designed by Bangkok-based firm Taste Space, which used only Thai materials in the interiors, even the paint. The food is just as authentic.
Tucked away on Hudson Street, the 60-seat bolthole champions charcoal-grilled dishes you might find in Bangkok itself—albeit served in a more made-for-photography fashion, Chef Max Wittawat having appeared on Iron Chef stateside and in Thailand and Japan.
There’s beef tongue brined in galangal and lemongrass for more than 24 hours, charred and served alongside Tamarind Jaew sauce and toasted rice powder. The octopus, too, is slow-cooked over charcoal and arrives with pickled garlic sauce. Don’t forget to order a Smokey Milk cocktail (sake, gin, fermented rambutan, clarified milk, and pear cordial) for a palate cleanser.
Below, three more standout dishes to try.
Hokkaido Scallop Ceviche
Sashimi-grade Hokkaido scallop with pickled watermelon rind, diced watermelon, mint, and garlic, topped with chili watermelon granita.
Deep fried pork cheeks served with savory garlic fried rice topped with spiced pork cracklings.
Gin, Napa cabbage broth, fish sauce, fresh pear, citrus, clarified milk.

Listening Room: Chef Justin Pichetrungsi
Meet The Makers: Erin Hupp
The Oakland-based ceramicist imbues plateware with organic and sensorial qualities for restaurants such as Pasta Bar and Hilda and Jesse. Here, she tells us about her minimalist collections for San Francisco’s Michelin-starred Sons & Daughters.
I use textured surfaces and glazes that invite guests to touch my ceramics and interact with the plate or bowl holding their meal. My inspiration is texture: natural oak bark, colorful eucalyptus tree trunks, and caked mud on my hikes in the Redwoods, and food like tuile or frothed cream.
Piece you wish you could take home:
My latest collection for the restaurant includes Alabaster ribbed broth cups and an accompanying ribbed pourer. I was so fond of how they turned out that I made a separate set for my home. At the restaurant, Chef Harrison presents them tableside atop handmade wooden trays made by local maker Morlock Woodworks for a special welcome drink.
