A new cafe dedicated to Mediterranean and Nordic cuisines will open with a party this weekend featuring live music, bar bites, natural wines, cocktails, and art. 

Soi Sukhumvit 26 has a new eatery on the map. Dubbed Verde, it will serve homemade and “health-conscious” dishes alongside exhibitions of art.

The kitchen is led by chefs who are no stranger to Bangkok dining: Stuart Nombluez, formerly of vegan fusion joint Vistro and two others formerly of Roast and Mozza by Cocotte. They’re aiming for simple yet nourishing food, making as many things in-house as possible, including their own sauces, flatbread, sorbets, and gelatos.

Menu highlights include caesar croquettes (parmesan, artisan bacon, anchovy, homemade caesar dressing, THB270) as a starter; tuna toast (spicy remoulade, pickled red onions, and sourdough bread, THB290); and a vegetarian Portobello burger (with truffle dijonaise, rocket, and potato wedges served on brioche buns, THB320).

Their coffee is from local farmers sourced by Left Hand Roaster (THB90 to THB155). They also have natural wines (THB1,800 to THB3,200 for a bottle), beers (THB120 for Beer Lao Lager, THB160 for Fullmoon Say Play IPA), and tea pots (THB80).

Verde also serves as a community gallery with rotating exhibitions and a retail space selling clothes and footwear from ethical Brazilian streetwear and skateware company, Cariuma.

The venue’s grand opening party will run 7pm to 11pm on Saturday. It will feature an exhibition of work by Trey Hurst, an American visual artist and designer. 

Entry is free. The first 30 guests will receive a glass of Prosecco. 

Verde is located on Soi Sukhumvit 26, just a few minutes on foot or motorbike from BTS Phrom Phong. It’s open 9am to 6pm every day.
