Located just off Chelsea’s Sloane Square in an elegant townhouse (which used to house Vineet Bhatia), Kutir is looking to offer a punchy, authentic and traditional menu from one of the UK’s most successful and creative Indian Chefs. Kutir, meaning ‘hut’ in Sanskrit, draws inspiration from the royal tradition of hunting expeditions in the luscious forests and jungles of the Indian countryside.
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. The short, regularly-changing cocktail menu focus on natural ingredients found in the wilderness of India and the shrubs and infusions that best match and enhance the food.
Truffle and mushroom Khichad; lobster Bonda and Rasam, 24 hour slow-cooked Roganjosh, and the Tandoori stone bass with crispy squid.
The Sariska; with sweet basil, ginger, bathtub gin, activated charcoal and lavender bitters and the Lodgic; with jalapeño, watermelon, Alphonso mango, gold leaf, sugarcane juice and Sky vodka.
