It was one of the last places we visited before the Christmas lockdown, but fans of Covent Garden restaurant J. Sheekey will be aware that the restaurant had yet to reopen its doors this summer. Turns out a 125 year old restaurant needs a bit of work done to look its best, so they've been spending that time giving it a bit of a refurb.
To that end, Sheekeys is getting ready to open again this month and probably the biggest change its regulars will notice is the new 'winterised' terrace. The terrace space has now been given a proper roof (retractable of course) making it a great spot for seafood, rain or shine.
Other changes inside include a new central crustacean bar and the introduction of a limited edition 125 Platter for the restaurant's birthday, featuring a dozen mixed oysters, 20g of platinum caviar and two glasses of Champagne for £125.
"We are excited to be welcoming back our guests once more," says restaurant GM Ludovic Solmi, "and celebrating this milestone anniversary throughout the year."
