What with Hawksmoor, Tramshed and the rest, east London’s dead meaty these days, so Wright Brothers made a very welcome change when it opened a year or so back. It’s a brilliant fish joint that just happens to be five minutes’ walk from my house. I often pop in for a quick bite and a drink, and I love sitting at the long, marble-topped bar. In fact, I’ll sit there even when I’m having a full-blown meal – it’s just so classy and conducive to eating great fish. The starters have a slight Italian slant, which is right up my street, but it’s the fresh-as-can-be shellfish you really come for. It always takes me ages to choose what to have, which I’ve always thought is a sign of a good restaurant. I start off wanting everything on the menu, then whittle it down to something more manageable.
The oysters – they have such a wide selection. And the deep-fried olives, to keep you going while you make up your mind what else to have.
