2. The Lord Erroll, Nairobi
The Lord Erroll in Nairobi has undergone a complete overhaul, including a new chef and owner.
The Lord Erroll restaurant has been a Nairobi institution for years, but a new chef in the form of Isaac Arunga, a new staff team, a new owner (Zahra Bahlewa) and a new interior have attracted a whole new clientele.
The setting is one big draw for people who travel to Kenya. This beautiful colonial-era house set in expansive gardens with lakes is in the most exclusive neighborhood of Nairobi.
But the plates are another. Renditions of European classics are delivered with style and aplomb.
An impeccable rack of lamb, Italian-influenced eggplant and shamelessly old-school desserts like bread and butter pudding or crêpe suzette ensure diners keep coming back for more.
