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. Since arriving in the U.S., he has expanded his repertoire to encompass what he calls “Cal-Indian cuisine,” imbuing farmer’s market ingredients with traditional Indian spices. The result is an exotic, high-end spin on Southern Indian cuisine—one that earned him two Michelin stars in 2016. The Spice Route prix fixe menu features 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 high-end, from the extensive wine list to the glittering chandeliers overhead.
