J Sheekey FISH Summary

J Sheekey FISH by Allan Jenkins

In the heart of London's Covent Garden, J Sheekey has been offering the finest fish, oysters, shellfish and other fruits de mer since the 1890s. Josef Sheekey was a market stall holder given permission by Lord Salisbury to serve fish and seafood in his 1896 property development in St Martin's Court, on the proviso that he supply meals to Salisbury's after-theatre dinner parties. Over a century later, the restaurant retains its late-Victorian charm and buzzes with fashionable folk and famous faces.

The menu takes in prime fish such as Dover and lemon sole, brill and salmon, with seasonal specials such as Esk sea trout with lovage and girolles, roast lobster with sweetbreads and salt baked bass. Old favourites include lobster thermidor and Sheekey's famous fish pie.

J Sheekey Fish immortalises recipes from this renowned kitchen. Sheekey Executive Chef Tim Hughes has teamed up with legendary cookery editor Allan Jenkins to create the cookery book event of 2012.

J Sheekey FISH Reviews

My favourite dishes from one of my favourite fish restaurants * Rick Stein *
J Sheekey is a lovely fish restaurant: the service is second to none, and if I want to have a great night, that's where I'll go * Angela Hartnett *
For the secrets of London's most venerable fish restaurant look no further than J Sheekey Fish. From pollock to potted shrimps, crab to Cornish fish stew - here are dishes beloved of Sheekey's fashionable clientele since the 1890s. Add some interesting vegetable ideas, and a slew of puddings - either rib-sticking or airily light - and you have a compelling kitchen companion. * Stella, Sunday Telegraph *
A pearl. If you're looking for a slice of the high life, at very reasonable cost, seek out this beautiful (intimate and Deco-ish) annex to Theatreland's old-school fish favourite, where divine oysters head up a sophisticated light-bites menu * Hardens 2011 *
