Review on Fishworks
FishWorks on Swallow Street in Piccadilly is part of a small group of three well regarded seafood restaurants with branches in Marylebone and Richmond in Surrey. Featuring a traditional wet fish counter, the stylish interior makes excellent use of wine racks to divide up the space, with the ability to open the entire glass frontage during warmer weather.
Seafood arrives daily from carefully selected sustainable sources off the South Coast and Brixham markets, ensuring the quality and freshness of the fish. The kitchen uses time-honoured, precise cooking techniques that allow the natural flavours of the dish to shine through. The fruits of the sea could appear in the shape of steamed mussels with garlic, shallots and parsley or pan fried hook and line caught squid with fresh gremolata and chilli. Follow on with main courses of whole Nova Scotia lobster, simply grilled with garlic butter, parsley and fresh lemon or maybe seared yellow fin tuna with cracked black pepper, rocket, soy and mirin dressing. Meat lovers can choose the 10oz ribeye steak, matured for 21 days served with peppercorn sauce and chipped potatoes and for vegetarians there's feta and chargrilled artichoke linguini with mixed olives, sun blushed tomatoes and fresh herb pesto. When it comes to desserts there's a seriously decadent chocolate cake paired with walnut ice cream or Eton Mess with créme de cassis berries, vanilla mascarpone and raspberry meringue.
FishWorks offers a carefully compiled wine list to complement the dishes with plenty of offerings by the glass.
