A lot of people asked me: Why Bananier ? Here is the story...
Have you ever smelled a steamed banana leaf? This unique scent will forever embody a flurry of my childhood memories, instantly unlocking flashbacks of the beautiful Asian continent, its unique dishes, vibrant market stalls, and trendy restaurants. Growing up, this same sweet leafy aroma led me to the kitchen, intrigued by my Ba Noi’s (grandmother's) culinary concoctions. A family passion for cooking passed on from generation to generation, my father introduced me to Thai flavor, technique, and creativity. Soon after, my parents guided me through the entrepreneurial challenges of their own restaurants, L'Escale a Bangkok and Red Thai, from staffing to sourcing, and from plating to customer journey.
Twenty more years alongside our city’s most amazing cooks and restaurateurs, inspired by childhood recipes and my own, I finally bring you "Bananier Resto-Bar"!
You'll be able to find me in the front hall, running in and out of the kitchen. You'll also catch a glimpse of Papa Ngoc and Mama Ly in the kitchen.
