Bampot Kitchen and Bar has a cool New York City bistro vibe but, unlike the Big Apple where tables are smushed together, there’s elbow room galore here. From their roomy perches, guests can peer into the bustling open kitchen, the equally buzzy bar area, stocked with international wines and local spirits; or at the art on the walls, much of which comes from talented local artists. The Scottish chefs here balance the menu between small plates and heartier mains. The ribeye carpaccio, grilled squid in its own ink, and the seabass ceviche are affordable enough (150-300B) that a table of friends could order a few to share. Of the entrees, the Maine lobster mac and cheese, and the vegan asparagus risotto are top choices. It’s a welcome foil to Phuket’s traditional Thai restaurants.
