Named after the Barbary Coast (the area settled by the Berbers in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya), this vibrant spot puts a contemporary spin on North African classics. Grab a stool at the kitchen bar to watch a young, talented team construct beautifully balanced small sharing plates that are big on flavour. Think charred octopus with pomegranate molasses and chewy Jerusalem bagels dunked in za’atar. The wine list is as tight as the service, with some interesting Croatian and Israeli varietals. But get there early or expect to queue.
