‘We fell in love with London a long time ago, and we’re very excited we’ve finally arrived’.
Inews reports that a family run fishmongers and restaurant group from The Netherlands famous for its “sustainable” ethos and long waiting lines will launch its first UK site in August.
The Seafood Bar, which was founded by the De Visscher family in 1984, has long promised to put ethics first, only buying fish from trusted sources in the hope of maintaining healthy ocean stocks.
The group’s four existing restaurants split between Amsterdam and Utrecht also only run on wind energy and operate with a strict zero waste policy.
Now, The Seafood Bar will launch in London, taking on a Grade II-listed property on Dean Street in Soho, one of the country’s most lauded dining locations.
The De Visscher family said they will bring “only the freshest” seafood to the UK, including Nordic Blu salmon, which claims to be the “world’s most sustainably farmed”.
“It’s our dream to bring our guests incredible seafood, and we are living that dream,” the family said. “We fell in love with London a long time ago, and we’re very excited we’ve finally arrived.”
The restaurant will serve classic dishes such as fish and chips, vongole (pasta with clams), Irish oysters, and fruits de mer platters with the likes of crab from the North Sea, Dutch shrimps, langoustines, and prawns.
