Seafood specialists The Oystermen will double the size of their critically-acclaimed Seafood Bar & Kitchen in Covent Garden this Autumn.
The extended space, combining 31 with 32 Henrietta Street, will host a brand-new all-day oyster and raw bar especially for walk-in visitors, and guests will be able to choose from an even broader selection of rock and native oysters, carefully sourced by co-founders Rob Hampton and Matt Lovell from oyster fisheries from Cornwall to Scotland, via Dorset, Kent, Essex and North Wales.
The 50-seater restaurant will also feature a more expansive open kitchen, where Head Chef Alex Povall and his team will cook up a wide menu of the finest fresh fish, seafood and hot oysters for lunch and dinner. Produce will be brought in directly with an impressive range of whole Devon Brown Crab on offer at market price until they sell out, and dishes will continue to change regularly to match the season.
Champions of small sparkling wine growers, The Oystermen’s relaunched venue will showcase an increased array of interesting great-value sparkling and fantastic wines for diners to sample alongside their meal, as well as a new bar menu of cocktails, craft beers on draft and by bottle (including The Oystermen & Canopy Beer Co’s special collaboration ‘Everyday Oyster Stout’).
Co-founder Matt Lovell commented:
“We have had an amazing first year in Covent Garden, and are incredibly excited to be expanding our Seafood Bar & Kitchen here in the heart of the West End. We can’t wait to offer a bigger selection of the best British seafood and fish and to be able to welcome even more diners to our ‘bigger boat’ this Autumn”.
