Welcome to Campton Place

The Campton Place Restaurant, Bistro and Bar has been a landmark dining destination for more than two decades. Continuing the culinary journey, the legend is rejuvenated with a new and exciting adventure by Chef Srijith who has masterfully created new menus bringing a distinctive palette to San Francisco embodying Indian inspirations with local California Cuisine and gentle Spice Route overtones.

Chef Sri’s sophisticated style of Cal-Indian cuisine combines French classical cooking techniques with local, seasonal ingredients and global flavors, particularly those from South Asia. His exciting cuisine has won acclaim not only from local diners and visitors, but also the Michelin Guide, which has awarded Campton Place a coveted One Star for four years in a row. A treat for the senses awaits diners.

Campton Place Restaurant awarded Michelin Star Five years in a row to receive honor

San Francisco, CA – Oct. 21, 2014 -- Campton Place is pleased to announce it has been awarded an esteemed one star rating in the just-released “2015 Michelin Guide San Francisco Bay Area & Wine Country.” This marks the fifth year in a row that the restaurant has garnered this honor. “We are delighted to share in that commitment to excellence here at Taj Campton Place,’’ said General Manager Ashrafi Matcheswala. “We are very proud of our culinary team for preserving the heritage and continuing the legacy of this landmark San Francisco restaurant.’’ For more than 25 years, Taj Campton has been the launching ground for some of the most celebrated chefs around, including Bradley Ogden, Daniel Humm and Todd Humphries. For the past six years, the restaurant has been helmed by renowned Chef Srijith Gopinathan, who has put his innovative stamp on the elegant Union Square establishment with his contemporary Cal-Indian cuisine. The food is complimented by Master Sommelier Richard Dean’s extraordinary 10,000-bottle wine cellar. The restaurant received a three star review in 2014 from the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s indeed an honor to have my food recognized once again by the prestigious Michelin Guide,’’ said Chef Sri. “It makes me strive even further to use my classical training, Indian heritage, global palate and the premier products of the Bay Area to create a dining experience bar none.’’

Featured Libations

 

 

The Maharaja                                                                   15.00

The Maharaja is truly a drink fit for royalty.  The sour and sweet combination of our homemade Blackberry Shrub distinguishes the drink from anything you have ever tried.  A hint of citrus balances the cocktail, but the real pleasure is when you learn how well a splash of Lagunitas’ India Pale Ale, with its bitter profile and effervescent finish, compliment each flavor.

Long live the King!

Wine

In keeping with the culinary superlatives, our cellar is also highly acclaimed as a destination among winemakers and wine connoisseurs. With over fifteen hundred carefully selected labels from around the globe, our Master Sommelier Richard Dean, can select wines that will seamlessly harmonize with the distinct flavors expressed in the menu.

The wines by glass selection allows for a varied tasting discovery throughout the meal with over forty options. An extensive list of half bottles is also available for those who wish to explore multiple vintages.

Executive Chef: Srijith Gopinathan

Growing up in Southern India where the scent of black pepper and cardamom filled the air, and fragrant turmeric and ginger grew lushly in his family's backyard, Srijith Gopinathan couldnt help but develop a natural affinity for spices. Cooking alongside his grandmother as a youngster, he watched her make judicious use of every bit of a banana plant from leaf to stem to fruit and learned respect for ingredients.

After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, he went on to work in the illustrious kitchen of Raymond Blanc and Gary Jones at the Michelin two-starred Le Manoir aux Quat Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons Saisons in England, where he honed his extensive repertoire of classical European techniques.

For the past five years at Campton Place, Chef Srijith has used his unique skill set to create a most refined version of contemporary Cal-Indian cuisine. His regular forays to Bay Area farmers markets inspire him to combine peak-season ingredients with spice route flourishes that enhance, never overwhelm. His nuanced palate enables him to create balanced flavors in dishes that surprise and delight. His versatility and depth of knowledge are such that he s even adept at creating the restaurants elegant desserts.

Gopinathan began his career at upscale hotels in India before taking the helm at Taj Exotica in the Maldives. He couldnt be more pleased to be in San Francisco now, a city he believes affords chefs and diners the best ingredients on the planet.

Master Sommelier: Richard Dean

Master Sommelier Richard Dean is one of only 150 active Master Sommeliers worldwide. His title indicates the highest recognition of wine, liquor and beverage service abilities in the hospitality industry and ranks Dean among an elite group of 68 wine professionals with the title and skill in America and was only the second to receive this accreditation in the country.

Dean exhibits his talent daily as he presides over the 10,000-bottle wine cellar with varieties and vintages from premier producers in the U.S., Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Spain, France and Australia, and several rare and hard-to-find vintages acquired on the auction scene.

In his role, Dean also leads The Campton Place’s popular wine dinner series, “The Wine Scene with Richard Dean,” which features international wine makers as guest speakers and wines paired with cuisine from the award-winning restaurant. He also hand-selects top bottles for maturation in Campton Place’s cellar annually, an exacting undertaking that requires Dean to review leading producers, price margins, vintage qualities and industry trends.

A constant and enthusiastic teacher, Dean is a graduate of the University of Hawaii and served as instructor and judge of the Master Sommelier examinations, a lecturer in the Fine Wine Series at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and wine columnist for the Honolulu Star Bulletin as well as Host Magazine.

Prior to The Mark, Dean held posts as Master Sommelier of New York’s Tavern on the Green Restaurant, and Master Sommelier and Supervisor of The Third Floor Restaurant at the Hawaiian Regent Hotel.
