Fishmonger/wine bar/seafood restaurant The Sea, The Sea has been a big hit since it landed in Chelsea on Pavillion Road. That's particularly down to the food by Leo Carreira (the chef previously behind Londrino) which Marina O'Loughlin described as "genuinely exciting".
Now there's news, as first reported by Eater, that they're opening up a second space - this time over in East London, in Haggerston. They'll be taking over the space that was once gaming cafe Draughts. The same team were going to be opening Claro in Soho, but that's been put on hold indefinitely.
The news comes from a licensing application, so there hasn't been an announcement yet. However, if it's a similar affair to the original, expect a fishmonger by day, restaurant/wine bar by night. Their current spring menu features dishes like:
- Caviar, egg yolk sauce, shallot & waffle
- Steamed prawns, lemon and almond aioli
- Salmon roe and hazelnut milk bitter leaves
It marks a interesting time for this Haggerston street which is also about to see wine drinkers clubhouse Planque open there this summer. We'll let you know about The Sea The Sea's arrival as soon as there are firmer details.
