J Sheekey Atlantic Bar Launches Guest Chef Series

SEEN is pleased to hear that J Sheekey Atlantic Bar will be hosting a series of supper clubs starting on 28th February, to celebrate their tenth anniversary. Not only that, guest chefs from around our sceptred isle will collaborate on a one-off three-course menu with Executive Head Chef Andrew McLay. Up to 50 guests will also be able to enjoy an exclusive bespoke cocktail menu curated by Coastal Plymouth Gin. A different chef will take part every six to eight weeks. The initial line-up includes:

Tuesday 27th February – Simon Huslstone from Michelin-starred The Elephant in Torquay. Hulstone will be serving sustainably sourced fillet of cod (it’s Skrei season), served with parsnip puree and a verjus and spring onion butter sauce. But fear not if you don’t get to the supper club, Hulstone’s signature cod dish will be available on the Bar menu for several weeks following.

Tuesday 17th April – Michelin-starred Mark Sargeant from Rocksalt in Kent, worked with Gordon Ramsay for 13 years and prides himself on serving the freshest fish caught by local day boats and serving produce local to Folkestone. Sargeant will be including some of this produce in J Sheekey Atlantic Bar’s signature sharing plates.

Tuesday 22nd May – Bruce Rennie from The Shore in Cornwall comes with impeccable credentials, having worked for Gary Rhodes and Rick Stein. His background in Cornish fish has established him as a truly top chef of seafood. Again the daily freshness of his small seafood menu will be of prime importance at J Sheekey Atlantic Bar.

Andrew McLay said, “Given all of these restaurants and J Sheekey Atlantic Bar’s commitment to, and shared passion for, serving responsibly caught fish and shellfish from sustainable sources, it made perfect sense for me to team up with all of these great chefs and collaborate on a menu. We feel privileged to be able to work together to give the public a taste of what we offer at each of our restaurants through the creation of a special one-off dinner and a limited-time dish.”

Lucky diners will also be able to hear each chef’s personal philosophy and culinary methods after the meal. After each event, a dish will be available from that chef’s menu for several weeks. You’ll also be able to partake of a Plymouth gin martini. Set to continue throughout the year, tickets are £50 per person, and include three courses but exclude drinks, service and booking. charges. Bon appétit.
