The space features black-and-white patterned wallpaper, a portrait of el matador in the entrance, Tom Dixon-designed chandeliers and a 5m-tiled mural of a Catalan anisette liqueur. French restaurateur Olivier Bendel – of L’Entrecôte fame – has done it again, this time moving from a Parisian bistro atmosphere and French fare to a straight-out-of-Spain tapas bar. Sitting on the bar, a whole leg of jamón (cured ham) is seductively displayed, while behind glass casing lies an array of meats, seafood and vegetables flown in from Spain. There are more than 20 little dishes to choose from, all best enjoyed with a glass of sangria – red or white – in hand.
