At this Soho branch of Yann de Rochefort's tapas spot, chef Marc Vidal plates Iberian dishes in an open kitchen. Diners—squeezed in at the marble bar and long blond-wood tables—snack on blistered shishito peppers seasoned with coarse sea salt, hanger steak a la plancha and aged cheeses over glasses of rioja wine. Cap your meal with one of the classic Spanish desserts, including churros served with thick hot chocolate.
