José Review

Rising Spanish chef José Pizarro packs 'em in like so many slices of jamón jamón at this tapas-and-sherry treasure trove on happening Bermondsey St., south of the river near Guy's Hospital and London Bridge. With only 30 seats and no reservations, you'll be hard-pressed to find a spot at the tapas bar or a perch at an upturned barrel after 6 pm, but stick with it, hombre—the tapas is astounding. Quaff a glass of Amontillado or Orloroso sherry, and keep those expertly-crafted small white plates a comin': patatas bravas...croquetas...pisto and crispy duck eggs...hake and aioli...razor clams with chorizo...paprika-specked Ibérico pork fillets. You'll either love or hate the crush.
