Tapas Brindisa (Rupert Street) | Tapas
¡Salud! ‘Brindisa’ takes its name from the Spanish word meaning (raise your glass for a) ‘toast’ and the restaurant’s fine tapas is more than a cause for celebration.
Tapas Brindisa’s cuisine focuses on the Castilian tradition of roasting tender suckling pigs and lamb in a giant wood-fired oven. Their showstopping 360-degree bar allows diners a full on theatre experience, where you can witness your dishes being expertly whipped up right under your nose on the Josper oven and Robata grill.
After years of supplying the finest Spanish foods to London restaurants, founder Monika Linton decided to go her own way and set up her first restaurant in London Bridge in 2004. Thus the Brindisa brand was born and now their Rupert Street branch is part of the burgeoning Brindisa family of restaurants.
Given Monika’s flair for importing the finest Spanish foodstuffs, you can be sure she’s combed the length and breadth of the country to source only the best ingredients. From the most wafer-thin of cured Ibérico hams to fresh Salmorejo (a cold, gazpacho-style soup), the emphasis is on simplicity, whilst the quality of the ingredients does the talking. Load up on their many light tapas dishes or gorge on their large Morada Meat Platter (starring morcilla, chorizo, sirloin steak, Ibérico pork and chicken), it really is a carnivores dream.
Being in the heart of theatreland, Tapas Brindisa offers a super tasty Pre Theatre Menu from Monday to Thursday, so it’s a perfect spot to sample some sensational Spanish before your show.
