Pier 59, Bangkok

Address: 21/100 South Sathon Road

Tel: 66-02-679-1200

Although it's perched on the fifty-ninth floor of Bangkok's Banyan Tree hotel, Pier 59 is as close as it gets to dining 20,000 leagues under the sea. Suffused with a warm cobalt glow and decorated with giant aquariums and clear pillars filled with bubbling water, the dining room so strongly suggests an undersea world that you half expect a manta ray to glide by your table. The only fish here, though, are on your plate. Among the winning creations: crispy lobster ravioli in a shiitake, coconut, and mango sauce; pan-roasted black cod with crab and English pea ravioli; and pan-fried barramundi in a shellfish reduction with lobster sticky rice. Satisfying meat dishes, such as a tender Australian lamb cutlet in ginger miso reduction, ensure that carnivores won't float away disappointed (entrées, $22–$80).
