The third Barrafina restaurant has the same signature look and feel of the other restaurants and comprises 23 red leather high stools, one long marble-topped bar, a state of the art kitchen and private dining space for up to 28 guests. The restaurant will also have an outdoor dining area to the side seating 16 guests. Executive Head Chef Nieves Barragán Mohacho, who was awarded Best Chef at the GQ Food & Drink Awards 2015, will be overseeing the kitchen operation along with Head Chef Diego Garcia-Fernandez, who previously worked at Fino.
The a la carte menu combines classic Barrafina favourites with new contemporary dishes inspired by the team’s recent trips to Galicia, San Sebastien and Mallorca. Nieves has been working extremely hard with her enviable list of suppliers, both near and far, to find the finest new and exciting ingredients. The menu shares a small selection of dishes with the Adelaide Street and Frith Street restaurants, but the rest is unique to Barrafina Drury Lane. A section of the menu focuses on Tortillas y Huevos, offering a mix of traditional and modern Spanish egg dishes, which are exclusive to the Drury Lane restaurant. As with Adelaide Street and Frith Street the daily specials will continue to push the boundaries and work with the exceptional seasonal ingredients delivered each day.
The succinct wine list matches the new menu and brings on board even more interesting producers. Casa Mariol, Vermut Negre, which is made in Catalonia from 100% macabeo grapes, is available by the glass. It is served traditionally with ice and soda, and garnished with orange, lemon and olives. The Hart Bros Special Selection Manzanilla sherry and Albariño is available by the glass and bottle.
Ever popular Barrafina have added a third string to their bow with their newest opening in Drury Lane. Good things come in small sizes, and with just 23 covers, this is a diamond. Perch on a stool and soak it all in as dish after dish appears before you. There’s classic Spanish cuisine combined with more modern fare and those infamous sobrasada croquetas that you definitely won’t want to share.
