After being delayed over a year by the pandemic, JKS Restaurants are finally ready to open their new Indian restaurant Bibi in Mayfair on the site where French spot Truc Vert used to be. Chef Chet Sharma (who’s worked as a development chef for the likes of Mugaritz in San Sebastian and Simon Rogan’s L’Enclume as well as for JKS) will be heading up Bibi, which will serve up modern Indian food, made with high-quality produce, in a relaxed and playful way.
The restaurant will be taking inspo from street carts and roadside shacks across the country and there’ll be a focus on grilling over wood and charcoal, so you can expect the likes of chicken liver maksa bun; raw beef pepper fry with coconut ash dosa; gondhoraj scallop with scallop roe chaat masala; skewered dishes like 4-pepper lobster and dagad phool lamb rump; sides like roomali roti and yakhni pulao; and apricot, buttermilk & black sesame halwa. All of that will come with a 50 bin wine list and cocktails such as the Champagne Lassi and the Ice Gola (tequila, calamansi, apple marigold & chaat masala).
JKS have form in this area – Michelin-starred and Mayfair-based Gymkhana is part of their portfolio – so we’d imagine Bibi will also be one popular spot once it’s open.
