J. Sheekey Restaurant Review

: J. Sheekey has, it seems, been around forever, defying the march of time and remaining one of London's favorite fish restaurants. Lunch is less frantic than dinner when, from the moment the doorman lets you in, you're swept into a theatrical hubbub where the rich, famous and celebrity clientele gather. Fish is flappingly fresh and treated with the simple respect it deserves: fillet of sea trout with caramelized endive and blood orange sauce; monkfish and prawn curry with mussels, butternut squash and basmati rice; and that favorite Sheekey’s fish pie. Save room for desserts, perhaps an iced chocolate and pistachio bar or hazelnut praline with popcorn parfait and milk ice cream. It’s traditional food taken to a new level. Not just the history but everything about Sheekey is so polished it generates a satisfied glow. The equally popular J. Sheekey Oyster Bar next door is worth a visit for a more casual experience. Set lunch menu 2 courses £23.75, 3 courses £28.75.
