Michelin-starred chef Rohit Ghai, who currently runs Kutir in Chelsea, is returning to his former stomping ground of Mayfair (having previously been Executive Chef at Jamavar and Bombay Bustle) to open new spot Manthan on the site where Lucknow 49 used to be. At Manthan, which will be a sharing plates spot, he’ll be uniting his childhood experiences growing up in Madhya Pradesh with his knowledge of working in those high end Indian restaurants to create a refined take on home-style cooking. That means dishes like Burford Brown egg curry; goat shami kebab in bone marrow sauce; curry leaf pepper fish; Jaffna lamb; Andhra jackfruit dosai, and garlic kheer. Almost half of the menu is meat-free so it’s an ideal spot for both veggies and carnivores.
Co-founder Abhi Sangwan has curated the drinks list at Manthan, with a cocktail menu inspired by the seven oceans of the world and featuring fresh exotic fruits, botanicals and infusions, plus an extensive mocktail offering for those off the sauce.
