From the Hart Bros, a terrace and Spanish grill next to Barrafina in Coal Drops Yard.
Harden's survey result
“An experience as well as amazing food!” – the Hart Bros’ spring 2019 newcomer, in Coal Drops Yard, occupies a big, glam terrace, overlooking Regent’s Canal: “it’s outside only, partially protected from the rain, but with no protection from any wind”. Each table has its own DIY tabletop mini-grill (the eponymous ‘parrillan’): “you grill your own partially-prepared vegetables, meats and fish”; and there’s also a selection of ‘para picar’ (Spanish nibbles). All early feedback says the formula stacks up well, but one or two diners feel the bill ends up a tad pricey.
Parrillan Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Flawed concept where you have to cook your own food. This results in the quality of your meal being affected by how hard you concentrate on cooking rather than your dining companions. I go to restaurants because I can’t cook. This isn’t helping!"
"The new cousin of Barrafina but different. First the food is based on a "cook it yourself" portable fire so the kitchen basically prepares fresh ingregients and you cook it all. Second, mainly meat. Yes there is shellfish but no fish. Third, it is entirely outside which is fine for summer... but in winter they need to heat the outside space with no less than 15 as heaters (we counted them!) which is an environmental disgrace. Should boycott really..."
"Shocked to discover this is an outdoor restaurant using 14 space heaters to warm fresh air. Won't go again."
