Little Chelsea Fish Market

Spring is abloom in London!

Redcliffe Square is dotted with pale pink blossoms. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and at long last I can go outside without a coat!

A pretty little day like this demands a stroll for lunch, and we found the perfect spot – the newly opened Little Chelsea Fish Market. They’ve only been in business for three weeks, but they’re already serving up a delicious seafood menu with fresh fish delivered daily from boats off the English coast.

The restaurant is bright and colourful, with an elegant swirl of jazz piano playing softly above.

The menu changes with the seasons, but the daily catch and fresh organic ingredients are all on display. You can even pick your own salad, where you choose items from the shelf and the chef assembles your selections back in the kitchen!

While we waited for our first course to arrive, I slipped Eddie a little going-away present, Garden & Gun’s The Southerner’s Handbook. I figure he could do with some brushing up on the culture and customs of the American South before we arrive in Charleston.

Our food arrived, and we didn’t waste time tucking right in!

A charming little restaurant – this place is a welcome addition to Hollywood Road. There’s a terrace out back which is sure to be a perfect spot for al fresco dining come spring and summer. Wishing them lots of success for the future!
