I went to see the Mousetrap at the nearby theater and wanted to have dinner afterwards, around 10pm. Barrafina is conveniently just a couple of minutes walk from St Martins Theater and they offer dinner until around 11pm. The restaurant was full, but being alone, I got a seat at the bar (that's the only seating option they have) right away, The staff were extremely friendly and it was fun watching the cooks cook away with the lead of the head chef (she's there about three nights a week). The portions came quickly to order and all of them were very tasty. Wine selection is brilliant as well -- make sure to try the sherrys with the food. My favorite dish wash the octopus with capers. They messed up the last orders so that I missed the rump of lamb but they offered free dessert in compensation. In the end, I liked it so much that I got the book to go and I'll try to recreate the dishes at home. The price is not the cheapest but it's certainly worth it.
