What they say:
The team behind one of Mayfair's most celebrated restaurants, Kitty Fisher's, are launching their second restaurant in Spring 2018. Following on from the success of their original venture the Kitty Fisher's team of Tom Mullion, Tim Steel and Oliver Milburn will open new eatery Cora Pearl on Covent Garden's Henrietta Street. Chef George Barson will remain on hand to oversee the running of both the Cora Pearl and Kitty Fisher's kitchens, and will be serving up the same gourmet British dishes that the original restaurant is known for.
What we say:
Mayfair's renowned Kitty Fisher's will be gaining a new little sister this spring. Cora Pearl, also named for a scandalous historical courtesan, is a new 60-cover restaurant and will be run by the same team as the original Shepherd's Market establishment. Located on the restored ground floors of 30 Henrietta - a former Bella Italia - the kitchen will be headed up by Kitty Fisher's chef George Barson, and joins a number of other high-end eateries in the area, including Frenchie, Balthazar and The Oystermen.
