For supper in the city one is presented with something of an overwhelming array of establishments, but I recently paid a visit to one that now has a firm place on my foodie radar. Marco Pierre’ White’s Wheeler’s of St James’s Oyster Bar & Grill Room in Bank has a rather delightful new menu, one you’ll definitely want to sample.

Elegant and refined, this place is something of a hidden gem. Opened in March last year on Threadneedle Street, next to the Threadneedles Hotel, The Oyster Bar & Grill Room is a new concept by Marco that looks to build on the history of Wheeler’s, which is famed for being the oldest fish brand in the world.

There’s a separate bar area before the main restaurant, which even on a Tuesday was fairly buzzing with post-work visitors. The restaurant itself is delightfully spacious (there’s nothing worse than feeling as though your dining in the lap of your neighbour). With perfectly attentive staff and a peaceful ambience we knew we were in for a treat.

Inspired by the simplicity of Marco Pierre White’s traditional French booking, the new menu includes dishes such as roast chicken with woodland mushrooms, as well as classics like the Wheeler’s classic fish pie.

We started with half a dozen oysters, perfectly accompanied with a delicious vinaigrette, and a baked camembert with toasted sourdough and roasted vine-ripened tomatoes. The Classic French favourite lobster thermidor was up next - creamy, cheesy and absolutely delicious, with chunky chips and side salad, washed down with a very lovely Riesling. Tricky though it was to find room for pudding, the Eton mess and warm chocolate brownie with ice cream were worth it.

Delicious food, wonderful staff and an ideal location, Wheeler’s is one to add to your must-eat list; the perfect pit stop for post-work oyster supper.
