Square Meal Review of Pix Covent Garden ?

A mini-chain of dinky “super-cool” pintxos joints, PIx has carved out a niche by offering what one reader called “a unique take on speciality Basque tapas”. Although you can reserve a table, most punters simply drop by on spec – lured by the tempting counter-top displays. The drill is simple: help yourself to all sorts of skewered ‘peen-chos’ in two sizes and collect the sticks in a glass before settling up at the end of your visit. Top calls have included crisp honey-glazed cod fritters, quince-coated chorizo on Manchego, quail’s egg with jamón Ibérico and textbook tortilla – plus a cheeky Iberian take on bubble and squeak. Thanks to its easy-come, easy-go grazing concept, Pix is a guaranteed hit with day-trippers, shoppers and the after-work crowd – especially as service is “full of smiles” and the food is backed by some terrific Spanish wines and sherries.

    Sunday Cinnamon :: Pix Bar, Covent Garden

    Inspired by the pintxo bars in San Sebastian and Barcelona, Pix has 3 bars in 3 trendy London locations. Trendy is the key word for this place, but there’s a lot of substance to go with its style. I visited the Covent Garden Pix. There’s a great, experimental cocktail list, and the food on offer is small tapas plates, which are sat attractively on the bar looking so damn good they practically drag you in through the window. The food is self service, perfect if you don’t want to wait, terrible if your eyes are bigger than your belly. You just go up to the bar, pick up what you fancy and save the little sticks the bites are presented on, which get totalled up as you go along. The food is pintos – basically little bites on sticks, and served in a shot glass, a dish or on crusty bread. The food is reasonably priced for the incredibly well thought out, creative flavour combinations to choose from...

  2. This gorgeous little Spanish place on Neal Street is named after the food they sell, pintxos, a kind of Basque-country bar snack, held together by a skewer and served in a shot glass, ramekin dish, or on crusty bread. It’s a delightfully casual set up...
