Chef Ro­hit Ghai set to open Ku­tir

Mid Day - - CITY -

Lon­don-based chef Ro­hit Ghai, who won a Miche­lin star for Ja­mavar within a year of its open­ing and later launched Bom­bay Bus­tle — both owned by hote­lier Samyukta Nair — stepped down from his post in Jan­uary this year.

Come Novem­ber, he will open his first solo restau­rant, Ku­tir. We hear it is lo­cated just off Chelsea’s Sloane Square in an el­e­gant town­house, and will of­fer a tra­di­tional menu that draws in­spi­ra­tion from the royal tra­di­tion of hunt­ing ex­pe­di­tions in the forests and jun­gles of In­dia. “The food is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the feasting-style, con­vivial and cel­e­bra­tory din­ing that oc­curs on th­ese re­treats, and menus fea­ture highly sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents with an em­pha­sis on game and seafood. Think Lob­ster Bonda and Rasam and 24-hour slow­cooked Ro­gan­josh,” says Ghai, who launches this project with co-founder Abhi Sang­wan. The two have worked to­gether as col­leagues at Gymkhana, Ja­mavar and Bom­bay Bus­tle.
