Square Meal Review of Barrafina ?


Covent Garden is fertile restaurant territory these days, & the latest entrepreneurs to be lured by its possibilities are Sam & Eddie Hart. Their original branch of Barrafina is already a hit in Soho, but they are planning to bring its tapas offering to Drury Lane in the coming months. The main action will take place at a long, linear table overlooking the open kitchen (complete with displays of produce), but the new outlet will also boast a basement function room with stainless steel, marble walls & an enclosed wine/sherry cellar. On the food front, expect classy charcuterie, artisan cheeses, tortillas & trademark tapas along the lines of salt cod fritters, stuffed courgette flowers, & morcilla with quails’ eggs – all backed by quality Spanish wines & sherries.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

Louis Roederer Wine List of the Year 2014The Hart Brothers’ wine list is suitably compact and no-nonsense. A dozen whites, 12 reds, a rosé, three cavas and six sherries is your lot. But nearly all the wines are available by the glass, and for such a short list there’s an impressive mix of ‘safe’ and ‘cutting-edge Spanish’, particularly in the whites. Clear, accurate, supremely easy to navigate and spot-on for its purpose.
