Core by Clare Smyth After almost a decade at the helm of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Royal Hospital Road in Chelsea, Clare Smyth opens her own restaurant and her first solo venture at 92 Kensington Park Road in Notting Hill. The multi award winning chef takes over the historic Victorian building occupied by Leith's in the 1970s and '80s to create a restaurant with a strong British ethos, in an elegant, relaxed interior. Guests choose from ten to 12 constantly evolving dishes, opting for the full tasting menu or just three or five courses, paired with a choice of 400 fine wines and champagnes. The style takes a natural colour palette of stem green, aubergine, almond milk, copper and burnished gold and links it to the exterior, seen through a picture window looking out onto a living wall. Enjoy at the entrance cocktail bar with room for up to 18 or in the main 54-seat restaurant.
