The team behind two of London's most successful Spanish restaurants, Salt Yard and Dehesa, have taken over the Opera Tavern in Drury Lane, Covent Garden, and changed the old boozer into a bar with a restaurant upstairs. John Lanchester, writing in The Guardian, reveals that "the porky things here are excellent" and certainly feature prominently on a menu of Italian and Spanish influenced tapas, some of which is cooked over the charcoal grill on the ground floor. Crispy pig's ears (or posh pork scratchings) and mini Iberico pork and foie gras burger are just some of the meaty treats on offer.
