Tap, Tap, Tapping Away

As more and more restaurateurs seek that magic formula – the one that allows them to succeed however dire the economic climate becomes – more and more of them are turning to tapas. There’s French tapas at the magnificent Terroirs tucked away beside Trafalgar Square; there’s Italian tapas at the equally fine Boca di Lupo on Archer Street. Small plates and plenty of them seems to be something of a watchword. And then there are the Spanish tapas bars which come complete with a dose of righteous indignation and murmurings about plagiarism.
