José

José Review

Rising Spanish chef José Pizarro packs 'em in like so many slices of jamón jamón at this tiny tapas-and-sherry treasure trove on hot gastro-trail Bermondsey Street, just south of The Shard. With only 30 seats and no reservations, you'll be hard-pressed to find a spot at the open-kitchen tapas bar or a perch at an upturned sherry barrel after 6 pm, but stick with it hombre—the Spanish tapas dishes are superb. Quaff a glass of Amontillado sherry and keep those delicately handcrafted small plates a comin': patatas bravas... croquetas... meatballs... pisto and crispy duck eggs... hake and aïoli... razor clams with chorizo... pluma Ibérico pork loin fillets. Everything's impeccibly sourced—from the peppery Marques de Valdueza olive oil to the rare Manuel Maldonado chorizo. Service is decidedly Excelente!, but you'll either love or hate the crushing crowds.
