Cora Pearl in Covent Garden is from the same people as Kitty Fisher’s, a decadent Mayfair restaurant that we absolutely love. It serves rich British food in a room that feels fantastically self-indulgent. It’s all dark wooden floors, cloudy mirrors, and green velvet seating. And, as with Kitty Fisher’s, the food is equally indulgent. You’re basically going to be eating tarted up meat and two veg, and when it’s good, it’s really good. Two slabs of veal served with a bordelaise sauce and celeriac, plus a side of broccoli and almonds, and some of the best engineered chips you’ve ever eaten, is going to make you very happy. Throw in agnolotti to start, and the ‘milk and cookies’ dessert, and you might just consider cancelling your plans for the rest of the day, and retiring to the downstairs cocktail bar until you develop the appetite to start over.
