Celebrated Soho seafood restaurant shuts down after three years
Bonnie Gull’s slick seafood restaurant will close on Bateman Street this Friday. Writing on Instagram, the restaurant group — which also operates a restaurant in Fitzrovia that will re-open next week after refurbishment and whose owner, Alex Hunter, opened The Sea, The Sea on Pavilion Road — said:
Sometimes great things too must end. This week we say goodbye to our beloved Bonnie Gull Soho after 3 glorious years of oysters, grilled fish and many many laughs.
One of London’s best seafood restaurants, it served a range of oysters, small plates based on British day-boat fish, and larger fish plainly grilled.
