About Wright Brothers City
OPENS SUMMER 2020
Seafood restaurant Wright Brothers originally started out life as a seafood wholesale business all the way back in 2002, but these days, the restaurant group’s portfolio spans five locations – Battersea Power Station, Borough Market, Soho, South Kensington and Spitalfields.
This sixth site is found on Frederick’s Place (a short walk from Bank tube station), and is split across two floors, spanning an impressive 6,000 square feet. Alongside the main dining room, Wright Brothers City also features a standalone bar area and impressive shellfish display, while those looking for a touch of exclusivity can hire out the private dining room for intimate dinners.
Across all of its London sites, Wright Brothers menus champion carefully sourced and ultra-fresh seafood which comes from UK fisheries. That means that on your visit you can expect to find daily-changing specials which often use British fish straight off the boats at Brixham Market.
Elsewhere you will find oysters and main courses which might include whole lobster with garlic butter and fries or beer-battered fish with triple-cooked chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. There are a few international influences too, courtesy of a raw section which features yellowtail tuna tataki and Kingfish ceviche. If you are dining in a group meanwhile, order one of Wright Brother’s shellfish platters, which you can customise to your own tastes and pile high with the likes of oysters, mussels and crab.
Speaking about the new opening, Wright Brothers founders Robin Hancock and Ben Wright (who also happen to be brother in laws) said: “With iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England on our doorstep, Frederick’s Place is an ideal location for expanding our restaurant offering within the City. Since launching our original restaurant 15 years ago in Borough Market, we have continued to grow our brand and look forward to revealing our sixth restaurant.”
