Little Kolkata After a series of successful sell-out supper clubs, Little Kolkata has a permanent home in Covent Garden, serving authentic Bengali cuisine in a dining room by French designer Meddhi Larouci. A comfortable and relaxed space to enjoy the traditional Bengali-style food inspired by co-founders Prabir Chattopadhyay, who was brought up in Calcutta, and Biswajit Deb Das whose ancestral roots are in Bangladesh. Typical dishes include sharing plates of Maacher cutlet, a cod fish cutlet served with the typical Calcuttan mustard sauce Kashundi, and Lilish Maacher Deemer, a spiced fish egg from the Hilsa which has proved to be very popular in Bengal. For traditional desserts try the Calcutta Mishti Doi, a baked sweet yoghurt, and the Cardamom coffee brownie with rose ice-cream, which has been inspired by the famous Swiss patisserie in Calcutta, Flury's. As well as the main space there's a private dining room, available for hire and open to the public for themed evenings.
