Full-time Kitchen/BoH: Chef de Partie

About us

Following on from the success of The Palomar (Observer Food Monthly, GQ & Tatler Restaurant of the Year 2015), siblings Zoe & Layo Paskin opened up The Barbary in June 2016. 

Over the course of the last 3 years The Barbary has carried on the award-winning trend, recieved much critical acclaim and been named TimeOut London's #1 Restaurant for the last two years back-to-back. 

We are an intimate, 24-seat kitchen counter serving the food of the North African coast from our site in the historic Neal's Yard. Head Chef Daniel Alt (previously Senior Sous at The Palomar) and the team create a daily changing menu of sharing plates using fresh, seasonal and stunning produce. Whether it is a freshly baked Naan e Barbari from the tandoor or Pata Negra from the Robata Grill, the food here is to be shared and enjoyed by anyone.
