The first restaurant in Chiang Mai to receive consultation from a Michelin-starred chef, X2 Chiang Mai Riverside Resort’s Oxygen Dining Room is setting a new standard for gourmet international excellence in Thailand’s cultural capital.

Presenting world-class cuisine for intuitive taste travellers, X2 Chiang Mai Riverside Resort is a new boutique hotel with an expertly curated portfolio of evolving menus, championing exquisite cuisine. Taking influence from France, the culinary capital of the world – dishes at this intimate new hotel meet the highest French culinary standards.

With creative interpretations weaving together Thai and international dishes that lean heavily on fresh, local and seasonally inclined ingredients; the hotel’s Executive Chef, Alexandre Demard has recently received direction from renowned French chef Nicolas Isnard who was awarded a Michelin star in 2009 at L’Auberge de la Charme in Dijon, France.

Known for his Michelin-starred restaurant L’Auberge de la Charme in Dijon, France; Chef Nicolas’ inventive menu is expertly prepared and plated by the restaurant’s Executive Chef Alexandre Demard and his passionate team. Dishes include a seven-course set menu of oyster jelly caviar, pan seared foie gras, red squid, pork confit ravioli and lobster tamarind or grill options such as French lamb or Australian Angus rib-eye.

Believing that the Oxygen Dining Room boasts a setting that rivals some of the best restaurants in the world, Chef Nicolas Isnard outlines: ‘At Oxygen Dining Room we’ve created a very special space where diners can discover a new level of Thai gastronomy, blending time honoured Thai flavours with refined French preparation techniques.’

Distinctively blending the old with the new, the 30-room hotel stands out from its peers with a prime waterfront location, spacious, stylish accommodation, and a stunning rooftop pool. Drawing upon Chiang Mai’s iconic Wat Umong as inspiration: a forest temple known for its unique tunnels and meditation spaces, while also referencing Chiang Mai’s ancient walled city; guests have a choice of chic and well-appointed rooms and suites each boasting subtle Thai décor touches and red brick walls to reflect the Lanna architectural influence.

Nestled beneath the leafy tamarind trees and facing the Mae Ping River, the contemporary and striking glass-house restaurant offers a completely fresh concept as a destination restaurant in itself.
