Harry Lobek: Owner, London Shell Co.

I was born and raised in London and am currently owner of cruising seafood restaurant, London Shell Co. Former sommelier at Pollen Street Social, DJ & Actor.  Having worked in London restaurants from the age of 18, Harry decided to build his own one with sibling Leah Lobek.  They felt the restaurant market was over saturated and wanted to offer people a fantastic experience with excellent food.  The Prince Regent travels from Paddington to Camden Town and back every evening offering a five course seafood menu.  Plans are a foot for a second boat restaurant next year.

What do you love most about Your City?

Diversity.  In London we are spoilt for choice.  You can eat authentic cuisine from anywhere in the world.  If it is not up to scratch it doesn’t last long.
