Hot new London restaurant openings

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. Branching out with her debut solo venture, Sabor, meaning ‘flavour’ in Spanish, opened in Mayfair this month.

Rather than focusing on one specific region, Sabor takes inspiration from flavours from all over Spain, from the lush green north to the sun-soaked south. The star of the show is the ‘asador’ – a wood-fired oven in the upstairs restaurant where octopuses and whole suckling pigs are flame-licked.

Like Barrafina, the main restaurant is a horseshoe counter surrounding the open kitchen. Classics like pan con tomate, chipirones and prawn croquetas jostle for attention with queso fresco with black truffle brioche, Iberian duck breast with ajo blanco, and honey and saffron ice cream.

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.
