Serving exclusively British wines, beers and spirits, the new addition to the Fulham dining scene is intended, by owner Leon Costa, to challenge the Michelin-star gastropubs.
What we say:
Former Caprice Holdings bar manager, Leon Costa, is launching his own seafood venture The John Dory. Costa, who previously worked for Covent Garden fish restaurant J Sheekey, is blazing his own trail with this new eatery that will specialise in oysters and lobsters. Formerly the site of Wimsey's, the 1,473 sq ft building has undergone extensive refurbishment to house a new bar and dining area.
