On Marylebone’s Quebec Street, Chourangi is named after Kolkata's Chowringhee quarter and will be similar to the group’s Oh! Calcutta concept in India.
The 2,900sq ft restaurant will bring alive a ‘unique culinary tradition that has been born of centuries of overseas traders leaving their mark on this vibrant culture’ with ‘Calcutta cuisine a unique blend of British, Dutch, Armenian, French, Portuguese and Chinese flavours that have been forged over a 300-year history’.
The menu will feature ‘authentic dishes, deeply inspired, selected and developed by Anjan’s personal culinary experiences of his mother’s cooking and his childhood in the city’.
Dishes will include prawn and crab parcels; banana flower croquettes and slow-roasted kosha lamb.
Conceived by Design LSM, the space will pay homage to the city’s refined architecture with neutral Indian limestone floors, rattan teak-stained furniture and whirring fans.
Founded by chef turned restaurateur Anjan Chatterjee in 1992, Speciality Restaurants Limited operates 130 restaurants in total across five countries..
Chourangi is billed as a joint project between Chatterjee and his close friend Aditya Ghosh,an airline and tech entrepreneur.
