 London’s Gymkhana earns its second Michelin Star

World travelers and food fanatics flock to destinations based on reviews of the world- renowned French fine dining Michelin Guide. The top restaurants receive the coveted three stars and only a smattering around the globe are bestowed with two. This year, London’s spectacular Gymkhana finally scored its second Michelin star after earning its first a decade ago in 2014. 

The two-story Albemarle Street location is fashioned after the residential mansions in Kolkata and Pondicherry with rich layered textiles and vibrant colors, and adorned with original hunting trophies from the Maharaja of Jodhpur throughout the restaurant. This sets the scene for guests to indulge in contemporary Indian cuisine that uses seasonal British ingredients in kebabs, tikka, game chops, biryani, and sabzi with a strong focus on tandoor and chapatta sharing dishes.

The elite social clubs of India, where members of high society would socialize, eat, drink, and play sports, inspired Gymkhana. With its second Michelin star, you can bet your gin and tonic those lucky enough to garner a reservation to this London hotspot will be deemed as privileged as those select few social club members.
