This ‘classy little tapas bar’ has much in common with its siblings, Salt Yard & Dehesa – from impeccably sourced charcuterie, cheeses & top-notch sherries to signature dishes such as stuffed courgette flowers drizzled in honey. However its setting – on two floors of a converted thespian boozer – guarantees bags of individuality. Original features such as the theatrical front windows dominate the ground floor, where the lack of bookings ensures an edgy buzz; upstairs is more cosy & relaxed. Either way, knowledgeable staff dispense ‘plate after plate of innovative & inviting mini-dishes’ ranging from richly satisfying mushroom, leek & truffle croquetas to standout char-grilled salt marsh lamb with farro, wild garlic & goats’ curd. Superb Ibérico pork from the robata grill is also worth a punt – either as a Moorish-marinated ‘pinchos morunos’ skewer or in the fêted mini-burger with foie gras.
