Best of Covent Garden Highlights
The Barbary is situated in the iconic Neal’s Yard and offers food inspired by countries that span the Barbary coast. Its dishes are made for sharing and kicking off with the freshly baked super light naan and dips is always a good start. Don’t miss the Moroccan cigars which are deep fried pastry rolls filled with a spicy cod mix. And then there’s the cauliflower Jaffa style which is incredible. It’s one of the best of Covent Garden but expect queues.
Cora Pearl, the Covent Garden sister to Mayfair’s Kitty Fisher’s, is named after another working girl Cora Pearl and there are nods to her glam life throughout the space. Not only does it look beautiful, the restaurant is turning out faultless food, from Bloody Mary mackerel to cheese & ham toasties to veal fillet with bordelaise sauce.
Tandoor Chop House is upping the game for Indian food in the capital, combining a traditional North Indian communal eatery with a classic British chop house. The tandoor oven is the star of the show and you can expect dishes to include tandoori chicken masala, beef bolti, Amritsari lamb chops and tandoor masala pollock.
Covent Garden Grind will have you hitting up the coffee-come-cocktail bar for more than just drinks. As usual, Grind has all your coffee and cocktail needs taken care of.
