J. Sheekey

Covent Garden
Fish + Seafood

It’s rumored that Ian Fleming wrote the James Bond books not while sipping martinis, but over oysters and a black velvet (Guinness and Champagne) or two in Covent Garden, at J. Sheekey. True or not, it is a winning combination and this is the place for it. With leather banquettes and wood-paneled walls covered in framed photos, the haunt is a charmed, intimate spot for scallops on the half-shell or Dover Sole with Bernaise.
