Gourmet New York food shop Dean & DeLuca has finally hit the region, with its first Southeast Asian outpost in Bangkok. Sited in MahaNakhon Pavilion—set to be the city’s tallest building on completion in 2014—the airy shop–café has high ceilings, marbletop counters, a black-and-white color palette and chalkboard menus touting signature offerings: try the goat’s-cheese-and-avocado sandwiches and New York–style bagels. Also look out for only-in-Thailand specials such as mango-and-sticky-rice shakes and Artistocakes—cupcakes with genteel-sounding names like Countess Chocolate, destined to appeal to the capital’s hi-so set.
