SquareMeal Review of
Tapas Brindisa Soho
A new look and a name change bring this West End Brindisa into line with the original in London Bridge. There’s now a bar area at the front where you can hang out with a glass of La Gitana
manzanilla and some smoked Marcona almonds, plus a cosy middle section with new wooden benches, and a counter with high tables at the rear. The more casual approach comes with a no-reservations
policy, so you’ll have to chance it if you fancy some grilled presa Ibérica or a sharing plate of Brindisa’s premium hams. The menu is set to change frequently, although the croquetas, Padrón
peppers, Catalan spinach and garlic prawns will stay put. The wine list offers some interesting bottles from lesser-known producers, and there’s fino sherry en rama in season.
