Opera Tavern

23 Catherine Street, Covent Garden, London, London, WC2B 5JS
Find this good tapas-style operation, combining the flavours of Italy & Spain, in a converted pub.

The ground floor holds a buzzy bar , whilst a more formal dining room operates upstairs.

Dishes in both range from nibbles - such as Olives through Smoked Almonds to Crispy Iberian Pigs Ears & Rillions to an extensive selection from the charcoal grill & oven.

These might include 'Mini Iberico Pork & Foie Gras Burger'; 'Chargrilled Octopus with Chickpea Fritter, Red Pepper & Mojo Verde'; 'Roasted Sea Bass with Wild Mushrooms, Leeks, Sherry & Lardo'; 'Braised Oxtail with Bone Marrow, Truffle Mash & Pecorino' and 'Grilled & Marinated Lamb Leg with Spiced Squashes, Caper & Anchovy Brown Butter'.

They also offer excellent charcuterie items - plus a selection of tapas suitable for vegetarians.

Those with a sweet-tooth might be tempted by 'Blood Orange Pannacotta with Pistachio Crumble'; 'Torrijas with Poached Pear & Cinnamon Ice Cream' or 'Cold Chocolate Fondant with Salted PX Caramel & Espresso Ice Cream'.
