Palette at 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai Boasts Nouveau Asian Art Exhibits


Is Thailand on your travel planner for 2013? The 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai has opened a new restaurant called Palette featuring a display of Nouveau Asian Art exhibits.

Palette’s menu is light and artistic, offering a selection of cuisine with a brilliant array of color and flavors using locally sourced and organic produce, including vegetables from the Royal Project farms.

The menu was created by Guest Chef Tammasak Chootong, owner of Suay Restaurant in Phuket, who has worked in restaurants and hotels both in Germany and Thailand as well as on the QE II Cruise Liner.

Open daily for lunch and dinner, Palette is located in the hotel’s original teak homestead which dates back to the 1800′s. The restaurant seats up to 20 diners, while an additional 16 diners can be accommodated in the wine cellar and private open air verandah.

Exhibitions of Asian artists will also be featured regularly in Palette, starting with Khun Worawuth Srakaeo, a student of Thai artist Ajarn Thanakorn.
