Cora PearlWith double-height windows opening onto the 'Actors' Church', this Covent Garden restaurant from the team behind Kitty Fisher's is an attractive proposition. George Barson heads up both sites as executive chef and takes inspiration from ' the party queen of Paris' at Cora Pearl. The 60 seat restaurant embodies the drama and excitement of her glamourous demi-monde life and serves a menu of simple classics and decadent dishes. Shrimp Newburg and a pig jowl and Montgomery cheese toastie sit alongside starters of leek heart with smoked eel. Main courses are a comforting fish stew, or confit pork belly with smoked quince as well as daily specials. Parquet flooring, dark textiles, ferns, upholstered wall-panels, tarnished mirrors and vintage lights decorate the main ground floor dining room overlooking Inigo Jones's St Paul's Church while the lower ground floor houses the open kitchen and an intimate cocktail bar with a late licence for post-theatre drinks and dining.
