J. Sheekey

28–32 St. Martin’s Ct.
London , England , United Kingdom

In the heart of Covent Garden, J Sheekey has been known for its fresh fish, oysters, and shellfish for more than 100 years. Tucked away on St. Martin’s Court, the restaurant is surrounded by theaters, making it a popular place for pre- and post-show bites. Inside this 30-seat dining room filled with leather furnishings, the wood-paneled walls are lined with autographed photos of old British stage and screen actors, such as Kenneth More. But the horseshoe-shaped bar, designed by Martin Budnizki, is where the action is, especially on speakeasy nights (a complimentary Twinkle cocktail is included then). When it comes to food, head chef Richard Kirkwood is best known for his classic fish pie and towering plateau de fruits de mer (for two). Meat and vegetarian options are available, too.
