THE HIP LIST
Best tapas in town
Tapas has been appropriated by many cuisines. Graze your
way through Spain, Italy and France at these top three...
El Pirata Detapas
This sensational Spanish in
Westbourne Grove is sibling to
Mayfair’s El Pirata. Owner Roberto
Mata has recruited fellow Spaniard
Omar Allibhoy, formerly of Ramsay’s
Maze, to reinvent traditional
Spanish tapas. For the summer,
Allibhoy has devised three regional
tasting menus. In July, there will
be a Navarra menu from Northern
Spain including roasted fresh cod
with ajoarriero piquillo pepper
sauce and chicken chilindon with
paprika and Serrano ham sauce.
August will feature a Catalunya
menu while September will feature
a Basque menu. The ten dish menus
are designed to share ‘Cucina Nueva’
style and will set you back just £20.

Terroirs, WC2
Inspired by the bistros of Paris, Terroirs is wowing
the critics with its artisan-made food and natural
wines. Chef Ed Wilson oversees the menu of
Mediterranean-influenced French tapas – dishes
include duck scratchings; snails with bacon, garlic
and parsley or clams with vermouth and aïoli. The
wine list is superb, biodynamically grown with no
added sulphur, sugar or acid. terroirswinebar.com
Bocca di Lupo, W1
Chef Jacob Kenedy takes diners on a gastronomic joyride
through Italy’s regions with a daily changing menu of small,
impeccably prepared dishes including saffron risotto with
bone marrow (from Milan), grilled eel and polenta (from
Veneto) and roast suckling pig (from Lazio). Clued up staff
will suggest ways to mix and match. boccadilupo.com
