He earned his first Michelin star there in 1989, and a second in 1991. Now with chef Aleksandrs Nasikailov he is opening the first fine dining bar and restaurant in Bangkok.
“Although I was born in the United Kingdom, my parents were from Latvia and I feel that it is a part of who I am. I am very excited to bring that food that I grew up with to your dining table,” explained Martin Blunos, Chef Patron of Baltic Blunos.”
“When thinking of Baltic, it represents the four elements of nature – air, water, earth and fire; these are the elements that you can see throughout the restaurant and bar. Baltic cuisine is very earthy, rough, and fresh; the ingredients must be fresh and cooked at its best. I feel very passionate in introducing my origin’s cuisine to Thailand and I think it will be very fascinating to see the blending of Baltic cuisine with local ingredients and flavours. I am extremely excited to introduce and showcase what Baltic Crossover is to every guest and I am certain that it will be a very interesting mix of cultures.”
