J Sheekey Atlantic Bar
MON - SAT: 12PM - 12AM
SUN: 12PM - 10:30PM
J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is a hidden jewel, nestling between the bright lights of Leicester Square and the chic Covent Garden, on the doorstep of jostling Chinatown and action-fuelled Soho. Open daily from midday until late, food is seasonal, delicious and affordable. Appealing to seafood enthusiasts, but neglecting no-one, the menu offers small sharing plates of fish, shellfish, salads and game, not to mention with the very theatrical Plateau de Fruits de Mer. The team is passionate and knowledgeable, serving from an open kitchen as and when the dishes are cooked.
An excellent wine list compliments the menu, offering a wide variety of wines served by the glass, carafe or bottle. The list of Champagne, sparkling wines and sherry also hits the mark. The team has worked closely with sustainability champions, Fishlove and their ambassador and modern day screen siren, Greta Scacchi, and thought-provoking photographer Jillian Edelstein to create a series of portraits in support of eradicating destructive fishing practices. These hang in the Atlantic Bar and are well worth seeing.
The newly refurbished terrace opened in June 2016 is situated along the front of the restaurant, a private oasis in the middle of Covent Garden. Bay trees and seasonal flowers create an intimate space, perfect for outdoor dining in London. Overhead heating and a large canopy mean you can enjoy the terrace come rain or shine.
The menu has been carefully curated by Chef Andy McClay and includes a dedicated lobster section. Summer means rosé, Pimm’s and Aperol Spritz.
