Harden's survey result
“If fantastic food is your priority rather than comfort”, make a bee-line for The Palomar’s “fun” and “intimate” younger sibling in Neal’s Yard, which majors in “the most tasty and exciting” North African-inspired tapas, all served at the bar. “In theory this is everything I dislike in a restaurant: countertop seating only, loud music, and sharing-plates. But it blew every prejudice out of the water. The food was exquisite – lots of flavours I hadn’t had before – and the ones I had, perfectly produced. Fantastic wine, wonderful atmosphere; and despite being alongside fellow diners at the counter, it felt private and relaxed. A really special evening”. “I’d go all the time if only you could book!”
“Believe the hype!” – Palomar’s younger sibling in Neal’s Yard rocks, from its “exceptional, tasty and distinctive Eastern Mediterranean small plates” to its “exciting atmosphere”. Eating is “buzzy, counter-style only” – “get there early if you cannot bear to queue!”
“Bringing the fun and fizz of the best places in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to London” – the debut of Palomar’s little brother in Neal’s Yard fully lives up to its stablemate’s trailblazing performance, with “a brilliant selection of totally delicious and vibrant Mediterranean dishes”, eaten “in a small plate, counter eating-style format”, complete with “loud banging music and chefs dancing along”. “Perfect for a drop in and quick bite, but beware of the queues!!” STOP PRESS: The Barbary now takes bookings for lunch and early dinner.
From the team behind smash-hit, The Palomar, comes a new summer 2016 venture celebrating the tastes of the Barbary Coast, from North Africa to Jerusalem. The tiny, 24-cover venue in Neal’s Yard doesn’t take bookings, unfortunately: we suggest you start queuing now.
