Chef/Owner Srijith Gopinathan and restaurateur Ayesha Thapar has brought their formidable talents to Copra, which opened in February in San Francisco’s Fillmore District. Gopinathan is celebrated for bridging Indian cuisine and Californian influences. This new restaurant project is his most personal yet. Copra pays homage to the coastal cuisines of India’s southern states: Kerala where Gopinathan was born and Tamil Nadu where he grew up, and also looks across the Palk Strait to the island nation of Sri Lanka, a short distance from his hometown of Kanyakumari, mainland India’s southernmost city.
Starts at $9 for smaller appetizer dishes
