Campton Place Restaurant has been culinary destination for locals and visitors alike for more than 25 years and has launched the careers of notable chefs including Bradley Ogden, Jan Birnbaum, Laurent Manrique and Daniel Humm. Continuing the culinary journey, this legend is rejuvenated with a new and exciting adventure by chef Srijith Gopinathan who has masterfully created new menus bringing a distinctive palette to San Francisco. Embodying Mediterranean inspirations with local California Cuisine and gentle Spice Route overtones, he uses only the freshest, finest and healthiest of produce from the repertoire of local farmers and the richness of the region’s ever-changing wonderful seasonal bounty. The dining experience is complimented with wine selections from a 10,000-bottle cellar and the expertise of Master Sommelier Richard Dean.
Executive Chef Srijith Gopinathan hails from Southern India, where he grew up cooking with his mother and grandmother. Beginning his career with luxury hotels in India, Chef Sri started to realize his potential to harmonize flavors and classical European cooking with the memories of his youth. On the path to establishing his interpretation of food, he attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, and apprenticed in the kitchen of Raymond Blanc and Gary Jones at the famed Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, in Oxford, England (a MICHELIN Guide two-star restaurant). Chef Sri joined Campton Place Restaurant in 2007, from the TAJ Exotica Resort & Spa in the Maldives where his Mediterranean-inspired cooking at Deep End was ranked among the world’s best by House and Garden UK and Luxury Travel Magazine Australia, and was listed in “Hot Tables 2007” by Conde Nast Traveler. Deep End was also named best of all Taj Hotels’ fine dining restaurants for 2006-07 in an internal company awards program.
