Cora Pearl & Kitty Fisher’s
After closing their doors for a brief hiatus, your favourite ladies of the night are back in action, delivering goods directly to your door. Mayfair favourite Kitty Fisher’s and her Covent Garden sister, Cora Pearl will be operating a home delivery service very shortly, bringing their menu highlights direct to your door, creating the perfect date night in, while going out is off the cards.
The delivery package will include a pre-mixed version of the Kitty Fisher’s signature cocktail – the Bad Kitty, a fruity mixture of Gin, sloe gin, elderflower, lemon and cava. Kicking things off food-wise will be the Welsh Rarebit, topped with pickled onions. This is followed by the Cora Pearl favourite – the Fish Stew, combining white fish and shellfish with a rich crab bisque and irresistible cheesy croutons.
There is also the meaty favourite of Roast Veal with veal jus and seasonal vegetables. No meal from the saucy sisters would be complete without their crispy chips – dubbed the ‘dish of the year, dish of the decade, dish of the century’ by the inimitable Giles Coren, The Times. Menu price and delivery details will be confirmed ASAP.
