The PalomarThe Palomar "serves lovely food" says Jay Rayner. "It pulls on the traditions of the Mediterranean fringes without being overwhelmed by them", and it does so with an "utterly infectious" "vigour and enthusiasm". This achingly hip, intimately small restaurant situated at the Leicester Square end of Rupert Street, in Soho, serves excellent food typical of modern day Jerusalem, with influences from Southern Spain and Italy, North Africa, through to the Levant. The narrow entrance space as you enter offers seating for 19 at the Kitchen Bar - from where you see the chefs at work - and opens out onto the main dining space at the back; a small room with space for 35 people arranged around banquette seating. The cooks occasionally break into an impromptu dance, or down shots with diners, creating a party atmosphere. But that doesn't affect the serious approach to the food - "dish after thrilling dish" (The Independent). From the sow-baked Yemeni bread to a salad of octopus, yogurt and chickpeas everything is to be sampled and savoured. As The Independent food critic Tracey Macleod put is, The Palomar is "Clamorous, cramped and exciting."
