The 10 Cases family bring an unassuming fish restaurant to Covent Garden. But in an area with countless new openings every week, don’t overlook a (somewhat) hidden gem, especially one with the potential to be a modern classic. Potted shrimp coquettes, lobster mash (yes, really) and steak tartare with miso egg yolk, apple and elderflower bring some much-needed updates to classic British fare, which is tricky to find in this part of town. We also love the wine list – glasses are available from £4, with around 15 available in glasses or 500ml carafes, and that’s not to mention the extensive list of bottles.
