BarrafinaRather unusually, and rather wonderfully, Barrafina takes the tapas concept and does absolutely nothing new with it: the whole place could conceivably have been lifted lock, stock and two smoking hot plates, straight from a Barcelona street corner. Nevertheless, it fits right into the hustle and bustle of Soho. Punters, perched on stools, crowd around the marble-topped counter surrounding the open kitchen. A feast of seafood lies invitingly on mounds of crushed ice, waiters gracefully slice wafer-thin cured ham from a whole leg proudly displayed behind the bar, whilst the garlicky whiff of fried chorizo and loud chatter pervades the air. Forget unimaginative Riojas; the wine list here has some far more exciting Hispanic wines to accompany your meal, not forgetting the superb selection of sherries. The success of this Soho original has led to two further branches of Barrafina, one in Adelaide Street and the other in Drury Lane, both in Covent Garden - well they had to do something about those queues.
