Revamped from top to toe, the Kingly Street branch of Wright Brothers is still “the place to eat oysters in London”, according to one reader. The interior now features a custom-built bar and a smart upstairs dining room with banquette seating, plus a dramatic semi-private space modelled on a supersized oyster-farming cage. There have been changes in the kitchen too, and the daily menu now touts modern seafood ideas with an Asian twist – perhaps tuna tartare, Cornish skate with chilli jam or whole black pepper crab, alongside lobster with garlic butter, roast cod with samphire and some meat riffs (Wagyu bavette, say). Otherwise, fans should graduate to the all-day raw bar for a briny shellfish harvest including bracingly fresh native oysters (‘naked’ or ‘dressed’) from UK beds. To drink, ask the well-versed staff to recommend suitable wines or thirst-quenching stouts and porters.
