Palomar means ‘dovecot’ in Spanish, a place of refuge for a traveller. Palomar near Piccadilly Circus is a refuge of a different sort: a very lively bar and small dining room which captures the spirit of Israel’s party and social scene, and can transport you to Tel Aviv as soon as you walk in the door. The dishes aren’t so much Jewish as ‘Jew-ish’ – there’s even a pork dish on the menu – but they are the best expression of Sephardic-style cooking, based on recipes from the Jewish disapora of Spain and North Africa, that we’ve ever seen in London.

Read on for our review of Palomar.
