Back in early October we mentioned that a quality fish restaurant was opening by Leyton Midland. And now the says-it-like-it-is John Dory Seafood is ready to take the leap.
What to expect? Well, a highly themed aquamarine interior for starters, with street-facing dining counter, window aquarium and pendant lighting. At the rear an open counter will be piled high with “the catch of the day direct from the fishermen’s net,” says co-owner Igor Nika.
There’ll be “shrimps, lobster, mussels and calamari on the menu, and customers can watch sharks swimming in the tank for add-on ambiance,” he says.
Before the Covid laws relax on 17th May, the venue’s fishmongers “will prepare your order with an option for delivery straight to your door – from seafood feasts to quick and healthy family meals.” All fish will be from sustainable sources, too.
