In BKK for a couple of weeks and a little French was a fine idea for solo dining on a Saturday night. Rang the restaurant and told there was room but maybe at the bar. No problem with that as it's the lot of a solo traveller. Showered and grabbed a cab across town. The restaurant is 100m from the Eugenia Hotel which is a useful landmark for a taxi. On arrival a gentleman, presumably the owner, was in the doorway and he told me it was full. I mentioned I'd rung earlier - that prompted apologies but little in the way of progress. I was given a glimpse through the door to assure me it was busy though I could see at least an empty chair on the mezzanine- maybe a table, maybe not - and space at the bar.The place doesn't do mood lighting.I felt a bit like a nun trying to get into a knocking shop and I was assured I wouldn't like dining at the bar - oddly enough this is a decision I'd prefer to make myself. I asked about other reasonable locals and was told of another place 'Le point zinc' or similar nearby-directions were a vague hand gesture. In my rather extensive eating experience when a restaurant screws up there are a couple of options that include 1. finding a table and smiling a bit 2. suggesting you wait at the bar until a table is free or 3. the bums rush out the door. I think I got a polite version of 3. Le Point Zinc or whatever had 3 diners and looked rather depressing for 9pm on a Saturday, so I went to Plan C and had a good meal at Le Bouchon on Patpong 2 (some miles away) which was hospitable.
