Hg2 : The Hedonist


Finally one of many tapas bars in London sods the slow food movement – sometimes life is just too short. This is the raison d’être of the Italian/Spanish charcuterie and tapas bar Dehesa, named after the Spanish woodlands where the black-footed Iberico pigs live (before becoming very fine ham). In one corner you’ll find a stand-up charcuterie bar where Atkins diet-friendly sharing plates of freshly shaved jamón and Manchego cheese can be enjoyed on the hoof with a fortifying glass of prosecco – perfect for a mid-shop pit stop. Said savouries can also be enjoyed off the hoof, perched atop high wooden stools; also on the menu are very reasonably priced meat, fish and vegetable tapas, Spanish and Italian desserts, and well-chosen regional wines. No wonder queues form as soon as the local media offices close (no booking) – not always such fast food then. If oversubscribed, try your luck at its older sister restaurant Salt Yard (54 Goodge Street, Fitzrovia, W1; 020 7637 0657) – both are winners of a Michelin Bib Gourmand for ‘good food at moderate prices’, or book ahead for Dehesa’s 12-seater private dining room. Quickly.
