The Cocochine

Former Petrus head chef Larry Jayasekara restaurant in a stunning and historic mews house with art dealer Tim Jefferies.

Located in a former mews house at 27 Bruton Place off London’s Berkeley Square - Hamiltons Gallery owner Tim Jefferies and Chef Larry Jayasekara. Named after an affectionate term for Tim’s young daughter, The Cocochine is set over four floors - there's a ground level main à la carte dining room, an upstairs chef's counter and an exclusive private dining room with original artwork from Hamiltons Gallery - including some original Andy Warhols. From the elegant table settings to the exquisite plating of each dish, every aspect of The Cocochine has been thoughtfully designed to elevate your meal. 

Sri Lankan-born Larry Jayasekara gained a reputation working in London's top restaurants, including The Berkeley, Le Manoir and Pétrus. Menus - with 'an homage to his travels and experience' are fully à la carte in the main dining room, with exclusive table use (no turning of tables) at both lunch and dinner. The three-course a la carte menu (for £145) menu hinges on modern European cuisine with dishes such as cauliflower marinaded for a week in soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown miso, teriyaki sauce and then deep fried, alongside lobster barbecued in a banana leaf and decorated with yuzu gel, crème fraîche, micro-basil and cardamom-lobster jus. We particularly like the sound of the Jerusalem artichokes with roasted chicken fat, and rich, truffle bao.
