The Docklands may still be the dead lands after dark, but Bar Nacional is pushing some tapas worth braving the concrete jungle for. If you work nearby, go for the business lunch menu for a killer combo ($29) of tapas, a main and dessert. In the evenings, the Feed Me menu will be a great way to graze your way through the menu's best.
Mention Docklands and you wouldn't be blamed for thinking of suits, towering apartments and corporate blocks. But look a little closer and you'll find Docklands restaurants putting out amazing food, from Spanish tapas to great Indian fare.
