DUE TO OPEN MAY 2014
Having established Barrafina as one of Soho’s no-bookings hotspots, Sam and Eddie Hart are planning a younger sibling – this time in Covent Garden. The new venture will occupy a high-ceilinged corner site with wraparound windows, and should strike a familiar chord with fans of the original: at street level there will be a long marble bar, complete with around 30 stools and an open kitchen, while the self-contained downstairs area will be given over to private events. Barrafina’s long-time executive chef Nieves Barragán Mohaco is overseeing the menu, so expect a mix of classic plates, fresh seafood, more contemporary riffs and top-notch Spanish wines – plus some new ideas from the Josper grill. As before, it will be first come, first served, although it’s likely that a few bookable tables will be also be squeezed into the dining room.
