SquareMeal Review of Barrafina Adelaide Street

Silver Award

London’s three branches of “buzzing” Barrafina can hold their own against Spain’s finest, and Barrafina Adelaide Street, on a corner site in theatreland, is no exception. Each has its own personality and style, although the no-bookings policy, marble and glass interiors, long bar and attentive, enthusiastic staff are common to all three. As ever, dishes range from the dainty (little shells of zingy, sweet scallop ceviche) to the gutsy (gorgeous, creamy milk-fed-lamb’s brains breadcrumbed and served with a punchy olive and tomato sauce) – not forgetting the Harts’ lauded tortilla laced with spicy morcilla and piquillo pepper. “There’s always something new and wonderful to try”, and two of our favourites are hits from the daily specials board – grilled John Dory lathered in a silky olive oil, garlic and parsley sauce, and Josper-grilled baby vegetables atop romesco sauce. To drink, sniff out the owners’ hand-picked sherries, or pick something suitable from the carefully sourced Spanish wine list. If you’re used to Spanish pinxtos prices, you’re in for a shock – but then again, a trip to Barrafina Adelaide Street is cheaper than a flight to Valencia.

Having eaten a couple of times in the Frith Street Branch, I thought I would see if the formula travelled. And it does. Every dish was spectacular from start to finish. The real treat is to see what's on the daily specials and take advantage of those, but get in quick as they run out fast. Already at 1745 there was only one lobster left. We plumped for a fabulous grilled langoustine with the most delicious herb butter crust and the brocolli and cabbage from the specials. The veg were cooked to perfection and so tasty. A real highlight is the piping hot, deliciously gooey tortilla that wobbles onto one's plate and melts in the mouth. I could quite happily go just to eat these perfect things. Incredibly delicious quail, cooked the perfect pink and served with chunky fruit sauce was such a treat, although I could live without the pine nuts in that dish and of course, crispy squishy chiperones without a hint of being oily. In our avarice and need to try everything we over ordered with 7 dishes in total which defeated us in the end. I think that tapas can be a bit over rated, but the Barrafina boys have got this nailed. If you get there later than 1800 however, be prepared to queue!
