Kutir | Chelsea Indian Restaurant
Rohit Ghai went to Gymkhana in 2013.
He worked out.
He was their executive chef, and after helping them retain their Michelin Star, he earned one for himself when he took over at Jamavar in Mayfair.
Now, he’s decided the time is right to fly solo, so he’s opening his debut self-run restaurant Kutir in Chelsea this November.
The place will have the same kind of high-end Indian cooking he’s built his career on, with the menu focussing its attention on game & seafood. You can expect dishes including tandoori stone bass with crispy squid; truffle & mushroom khichadi (a rice & lentil dish); lobster bonda (like a hot, fried dumpling-esque snack); and a 24-hour slow-cooked rogan josh.
Cocktail-wise, the list will draw predominantly from ingredients found in the “wilderness of India”, and’ll include the likes of the Sariska (sweet basil, ginger, gin, lavender); and the Lodgic, which blends vodka with jalapeño, watermelon, alphonso mango, and gold leaf.
It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to plan an immediate trip to the Indian wilderness.
NOTE: Kutir is set to open in November. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can check out their instagram right HERE.
