J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain

1-Michelin Star restaurant, J’AIME presents a wide range of enticing fare, with a focus on the harmonized combination between sophisticated French culinary techniques and well-selected imported and local ingredients.

J’AIME restaurant is reshaping and reinventing itself. For ethical reasons and the constant needs of evolution, but also because we are charmed by the beauty of the land where the restaurant was born and operates, J’AIME is moving towards a local metamorphosis. Discovering daily the colours and scents of South East Asia, the affection to local ingredients seams natural, if not logical; so, the adjustment has begun from a French background to a new “terroir”. 

But it’s not fusion! If J’AIME’s horizon in the chosen products and the thirst for discovery tend to an inspiring East, its character is still deeply rooted in the West, in French techniques and the balance of flavours.

The aim of J’AIME is to surprise you, presenting what we love; the beauty within the difference, where France might symbolize the seed, curiosity would be water and Thailand the sun.

Amerigo Tito Sesti

Head Chef at J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain, Head Chef at Antito, Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn Bangkok

Found under a cabbage in an imagined still life painting by a couple of passionate restaurateurs in northern Italy, his
destiny could only have brought him to explore the connection between the arts and food. In French cuisine he grasped its proverbial freedom.

He jumped around Europe, from Michelin-star restaurants to grand hotels and trattorias to chocolaterie, before crossing the Atlantic to farm the land and harvest its fruits. Then it was back to the old Europe, under the wing of Jean-Michel Lorain, and flying all the way to Siam. Now it is J’AIME time.

Thailand has moved Amerigo to interpret French cuisine in a unique new way, converting it by using local ingredients and passing on his careful approach to young Thai chefs.
