Pizarro to open fourth restaurant

London’s favourite Spaniard, José Pizarro, is to open his fourth restaurant in the capital this week at Crossrail Place in Canary Wharf.

Called Little José, the tiny tapas bar opens this Thursday at Street Feast and will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

Among the tapas dishes on offer will be an including Ibérico pork meatball sub with Manchego; crispy fried squid with aioli; spicy prawn fritters with lime mayo; patatas bravas; Padrón peppers and a daily-changing tortilla.

On the booze front expect a decent selection of Sherry, Cava and gin & tonic.

“My customers love José, with its cosy feel and its simple small plates. I wanted to recreate that vibe here at Little José, but also take the boring lunchtime ‘sandwich’ and give it a 21st century makeover,” Pizarro said.

Street Feast is a group of street food markets with locations in Dalston, Lewisham, Canada Water, Battersea and Bermondsey.

Pizarro runs three other tapas restaurants in London: José tapas bar and the more fine dining Pizarro on Bermondsey Street and José Pizarro in Broadgate.

Pizarro, who has lived in the UK for the past 15 years, is a regular on cookery shows like Saturday Kitchen. In addition to running restaurants he has written several cook books.
