Where the Venn diagram of Forrest Gump fans and seafood enthusiasts intersect, there can only be one restaurant destination – and now, you won’t have to head across the pond!
The very first London Bubba Gump opens on October 1st in the Trocadero near Piccadilly Circus.
As far as we know, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is pretty much the only restaurant chain based on a film (feel free to correct us) – and as Bubba himself (the fictional character, in the film, keep up) explained, there are plenty of ways to cook and serve a shrimp, so those little pink creatures are the stars!
If you’re not sampling one of the 19 different shrimp options, other fish dishes do exist, and any fish-haters who’ve been dragged along can dip into the steak, chicken, salad and ribs.
Regulars at The Wolseley will feel right at home with restrained dishes like Lobster Linguine, or the catch of the day with Lobster Butter Sauce; but the dishes we really like the sound of are the Shrimper’s Net Catch, the Run Across America Sampler, the Bucket of Boat Trash, and Lt. Dan’s Drunken Shrimp!
