After a childhood spent cooking alongside his grandmother in India, chef Srijith Gopinathan graduated from culinary school and honed his skills at a series of upscale hotels in India. After moving to the States, Gopinathan fused his traditional training with California’s fresh, organic produce. The resulting exotic, high-end Cal-Indian cuisine has earned Campton Place Michelin stars since 2011. On the Spice Route prix fixe menu ($155), you’ll find dishes like Maine lobster in a curry broth, duck breast with rhubarb and basil, and slow-cooked lamb served over basmati rice, snap peas and cumin-lime yogurt (the lamb and game bird dishes are cooked in an authentic tandoori oven). The overall experience is decidedly luxurious, from the extensive wine list to the glittering chandeliers overhead.
