Fodor's Expert Review J Sheekey

$$$ Covent Garden Seafood Fodor's Choice

Open since 1896, this timelessly chic seafood haven is a discreet alternative to the more celeb-focused eateries nearby. Dripping with vintage black-and-white photos of famous West End stars, J Sheekey charms with a ravishing menu of fresh Atlantic prawns, pickled Arctic herrings, shrimps, scallops, salmon burgers, and the famous Sheekey Fish Pie. Better yet, sip Gaston Chiquet champagne and shuck a half-dozen Fine de Claire rock oysters at the tiny 1930s antique-mirrored oyster bar for the ultimate in true romance.
