The Oystermen Seafood Bar & Kitchen:
Those looking for an alternative way to celebrate British Pie Week can head to The Oystermen Seafood Bar & Kitchen in Covent Garden to sample talented head chef Alex Povall’s unique beef and oyster “pie”. Served inside the oyster half shell, the fun twist on the classic dish features butter-poached oysters heaped with beef braised in The Oystermen x Canopy Beer Co’s limited edition “Everyday Oyster Stout”, topped with panko breadcrumbs (£8.00 for two). Diners can match their mini “pie” with a bottle of the same collaboration craft brew or choose from a host of grower champagnes available by the glass, and contrast the cooked oysters with the daily fresh cut-above collection of raw rock and native oysters sourced from all around the UK.
Since launching last July The Oystermen’s first permanent location has rapidly become renowned for providing exceptional food at an affordable price coupled with top-notch service, and the Seafood Bar & Kitchen in Henrietta Street is currently rated on Trip Advisor as both London’s highest-ranking seafood restaurant and the second-best restaurant in the capital. The intimate 26-seater space in the heart of the West End focuses on serving the finest fresh fish and seafood with a frequently changing menu to make the most of day boats’ best, and their weekday “Bubbles ’n’ Oysters Happy Hour” (3pm – 5pm) providing six freshly-shucked rock oysters plus a glass of Crémant du Bourgogne for £10 is an outstanding value pre-theatre deal.
