To celebrate the Oyster season returning we have put together a roundup of the best Oyster dishes London has to offer.
Thomas’s Café, Burberry
Thomas’s Café at Burberry is located in its flagship store in central London – a haven from the hustle and bustle of Regent Street, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Indulge in fresh seafood, such as lobster and world renowned Irish Carlingford Oysters, which can be enjoyed unadulterated or top with a squeeze of lemon and a dash of tabasco.
As part of their collaboration with Peroni this summer, Plateau are offering fresh oysters at £3 each as the perfect accompaniment to the refreshing new Peroni Ambra drink. These seasonal specialties can be enjoyed with an aperitif on the outdoor terrace atop Canada Square, or as a starter from the restaurant à la carte menu, served simply with shallot vinegar and lemon.
Modern British brasserie Kensington Place is bringing the seaside to Notting Hill with Beach Hut with Nyetimber . The restaurant has been given a summery, beach-themed makeover, and will be serving a set of special fish and seafood menus, including weekend brunch, through until the end of September. The creation of new Head Chef Arnold Ivey, the range of dishes featuring British fish and seafood includes Smoked salmon croquettes, Classic fish & chips, Colchester oysters and Steamed Scottish mussels.
Le Pont de la Tour
Renowned French restaurant Le Pont de la Tour opened in 1991 as part of the Butler’s Wharf Gastrodome and the launch drew crowds of Londoners to the previously unsung but spectacular riverside location beside Tower Bridge. The Thames side restaurant quickly became one of the capital’s most sought after and it has, through the years, hosted entertainers and politicians including the Blairs and the Clintons. Following a refurbishment, Le Pont de la Tour reopened its doors in 2016 with new menus for the restaurant and bar, which has always been known for its outstanding wine list, drawing inspiration from classic French cuisine with unexpected but thoughtful twists.
