There are so many reasons to visit Core by Clare Smyth. One, it’s the first restaurant by the only female chef to have headed up a three Michelin-starred kitchen. Two, it’s a ‘cor-blimey’ brilliant culinary experience, rather than a hard-core, haute-cuisine ordeal. And three, the interiors are casual-luxe, yet high-end enough to make your visit feel like a special occasion. But the food is the main act: ‘potato and roe’ (skin-on Charlotte potato topped with herring and trout roe and a slick of seaweed beurre blanc), for instance, is simple, but simply divine.
