If you want to get food while meeting someone for drinks after work, your options are usually shishito peppers or an overpriced cheese board. Tomiño, though, is a Spanish restaurant in Little Italy with a big bar area that works for casual drinks and snacks. They have a big dining room at the back of the space where you can get large format dishes like lobster paella, but we recommend sitting at the bar or the tables on the street out front and just having some Spanish wine and tapas, like the octopus and the eggs with pork spiced pork. Nothing here will blow your mind, but it’s a decent option for some affordable wine and a small bite.

Lure Fishbar is still just as much of a Soho party yacht as it was when it opened in 2004. The food has only gotten better.
Two Hands is a coffee shop and cafe in Little Italy full of very nice and very good looking Australians. But yeah, you’re there for a latte. Sure.
