43 Drury Lane, LONDON, WC2B 5AJ
The Barrafina brand is clearly on a roll with its lively repertoire of classic and modern tapas dishes, opening its third branch in theatreland. It's the perfect spot for diners who want to grab and graze through a few little plates of big flavours in the pre- and post-theatre slots. The Spanglish menu (cheery staff are happy to translate) offers ideas as traditional as plates of cold meats - coppa Ibérica, say - or classic tortilla. Elsewhere, there could be pork belly with mojo verde sauce or milk-fed lamb's sweetbreads. The place operates a no-bookings policy and takes groups of up to four people.
