SquareMeal Review of
Wright Brothers Battersea
Oyster farmers turned restaurateurs, Wright Brothers specialise in fresh seafood – particularly oysters, which sell for £1 a pop during daily happy hours at Soho, Spitalfields and South Kensington. There’s no shortage of choice on the menu, from juicy potted prawns, dressed crab, whelks and shellfish platters to seared tuna with dark miso aïoli, Thai-style curried mussels, grilled skate with chilli jam or truffled Orkney clams with chunks of tender Ibérico pork. But it’s the oysters that are truly unmissable: there are usually at least six seasonal varieties to choose from, plus deep-fried, smoked, dressed and citrus-marinated versions. A fun place for a night out, Wright Brothers’ stylish interiors mix soft leather banquettes with shiny brass and marble fittings.
