Drakes Tabanco is a Spanish tapas spot in Fitzrovia that feels like you’ve walked into an Andalusian hideaway. Everywhere you look, there are big, wooden sherry barrels and aged ham legs everywhere, and to say it feels intimate and relaxed would be an understatement. The food is excellent across the board, and the cauliflower salad is a must-order. The staff are incredibly charming, and it’s equally good for popping in for a couple of glasses of wine with a date, as it is for a relaxed dinner with a few friends.
