Twist, in Marylebone, is a bit weird, but in the best way possible. It’s tapas / small plates format is a bit Italian, a bit Spanish and has some subtle Asian flavours thrown in there for good measure. It surprises and delights with each dish. This spot is definitely one for a relaxed group dinner, one where you try most of the menu as you get through a couple of bottles of wine. At the very least you need two people to order the Josper-Bone steak - which comes out on fire.
