The definitive oyster menu: Wright Brothers
The Wright Brothers launched their business supplying oysters, such as French 'fines de claires', hitherto barely known outside France, to London's best restaurants. The restaurant clients who buy their oysters remain a who's who of discerning, seafood-savvy chefs including huge fan Mark Hix.
Their five restaurants in Carnaby Street, Borough Market, Spitalfields, South Kensington and Battersea all major in seafood, and especially oysters and spectacular seafood platters. Those not obsessed with oysters can order Brixham fish soup, cuttlefish croquettes and grilled Brixham plaice and chips.
The Wright Brothers' two-hour oyster masterclasses offer an impressive insight into the world of oysters: some history and dispelling of oyster myths, the health benefits, how to open oysters safely, what to drink with oysters and plenty of oyster tasting around the British Isles and France, including dressed and undressed, raw and cooked oysters. Ten oysters and a glass of champagne, plus goody bag, will set you back £65.
Masterclasses take place at different Wright Brothers restaurant locations each week, check website for details and to book.
