In early 2011, star chef José Pizarro left to start José, but we haven’t noticed any drop in standards, so you’ll still find an ideal blend of superb ingredients and refined cooking (the latter normally confined to larger dishes)…

This is a simple tapas bar on the edge of Borough Market. It utilises the excellent Spanish produce of its sister shop, Brindisa, within the market itself. For example you can get a plate of the superb Gran Reserva Joselito ham, perhaps the best pata negra that exists…

Tapas Brindisa is a loud, bustling sort of a place, as tapas bars tend to be, but it is a very good one, and if you treat it as a tapas bar and order just a couple of things to go with a drink, then you won’t have to sell your watch to pay the bill…
