Core by Clare Smyth

London, UK

50Best Accolades
  • World’s Best Female Chef 2018

With its cloud-like colour palette and polished marble detailing, Core is a fine-dining restaurant for modern times. It is the first solo venture from Clare Smyth, winner of The World’s Best Female Chef 2018 title and the first female chef to hold and retain three Michelin stars in the UK at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. Smyth is practically evangelical about sustainable British ingredients and artisan food producers. While her technique has its roots in classical French cooking, the menu is littered with charming British references, including roast monkfish scattered with Morecombe Bay shrimps and a ‘Core-Teser’, a gourmet take on Maltesers.
