Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is a hidden jewel, nestling between the bright lights of Leicester Square and 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 seasonal game, not to mention with a very theatrical Plateau de Fruits de Mer. The team is passionate and knowledgeable, serving food 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 terrace stretches along the lion’s share of St Martin’s Court and has been designed in shimmering turquoise and vibrant raspberry. Seating 50 people, there is a perfect mix of formal (on the restaurant side) and informal (on the Atlantic Bar side) dining. Open all day from midday to late, the terrace is ideal for al fresco dining in summer, and fully equipped with heaters and blankets for the winter months.
To coincide with its 10th anniversary celebrations, J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is hosting a series of supper clubs throughout 2018, welcoming guest chefs from around the UK to celebrate the best in seafood cookery, including Mark Sargeant, Simon Hulstone and Bruce Rennie. Based on a minimum of three courses, each chef will create a menu of delicious sharing plates, in keeping with the J Sheekey Atlantic Bar style. For more information please visit the website.
