16 new London restaurants to watch in 2018

Sabor

One of the most hotly anticipated openings of the year comes from the super talented Nieves Barragan, who helped propel popular Soho tapas bar Barrafina to a Michelin star. With the original site having moved from its Frith Street address to inside Sam and Eddie Hart’s Quo Vadis on Dean Street, Barragan is branching out this year with solo venture Sabor in Mayfair, meaning ‘flavour’ in Spanish.

Rather than focusing on one specific region, Sabor will take inspiration from flavours found all over Spain, from the lush green north to the sun-soaked south. The star of the show here will be the ‘asador’ – a wood-fired oven, so expect oodles of octopus and suckling pig in the upstairs restaurant.

Like Barrafina, the main restaurant will be a street level horseshoe counter surrounding the open kitchen, so diners can enjoy the theatre unfolding in front of them. On the drinks front, you’ll find a large selection of Spanish wines, gins and vermouths, with both Sherry and Txakoli given special attention on the list.
