Karam Sethi is flush with success after the launch of his acclaimed Indian restaurant Gymkhama in London last year, so it seems an opportune time for the restaurateur to return to his first venture, the Michelin-starred Trishna in Marylebone, to make some changes, including an interior revamp from B3 Designers.
As befitted the fine dining cuisine, Trishna was always a refined and classy place to be, and B3 Designers haven’t reinvented the wheel in achieving this spruce up to their original interior – the venue was closed for just a month while the cosmetic alterations were made. One of the major changes is the introduction of a gold framed distressed antique mirror installation, located opposite the bar at the rear of the main dining area which is now home to a new plush grey velvet banquette; the patina of the glass is set off nicely against the high shine of the brass pendant lights. Framed vintage mementos inject some spicy colour into an otherwise mild visual dish. Sethi has given the menu the once-over as part of the relaunch, and the wine selection has been reviewed under the guidance of rising star sommelier (and Karam’s sister) Sunaina Sethi.
