Establishment neighborhood
Barrafina
43 Drury Ln., Covent Garden
Restaurateurs (and brothers) Sam and Eddie Hart were among the first to bring a tapas-centric menu to London. Their tiny Barrafina, which has three outposts, only offers seating at the bar, and since they don't offer reservations you'll want to get there on the early side. The menu is old-school when it comes to tapas, so we recommend classic favorites like the traditional Spanish tortilla or the chorizo with potato and watercress. There other locations are on Frith Street and Adelaide Street.

Triyoga
Wallacespace, 2 Dryden St., Covent Garden
We were sad to see Triyoga's beautiful, Primrose Hill location go, but are more than satisfied with its new airy, Camden replacement. Beyond their well-known yoga and pilates classes—by far, some of the best the city has to offer—it's also worth checking out their infrared sauna sessions, craniosacral massage, intuitive readings, and nutritional, EFT, and CBT therapy (depending on what you're after). They offer additional services at Triyoga locations in Camden, Soho, and Chelsea.
