The Barbary What happens when you can't get a seat in one of London's most desirable restaurants? They open a new one, thankfully. The second restaurant from siblings Layo and Zoe Paskin, Assaf Granit and Uri Navon who also own The Palomar, you'll find The Barbary in Neal's Yard, Covent Garden. The menu reflects the countries along the Barbary Coast through to the Mediterranean Sea leading to Israel. The mood of the food is 'grilling and baking from the Barbary Coast to Jerusalem' so you get Moroccan, Algerian, Tunisian, Libyan food like grilled duck hearts, sirloin steaks, octopus mashawsha, and asparagus with black tahini. Eat at the silver metal bar that wraps around the open kitchen and take in the theatre of the chefs at work. The slight snag - the place is tiny... and it doesn't take reservations. In short, be prepared to queue.
