Every city has its mad-scientist style chef (hello, Heston Blumenthal, yes we’re talking to you) and Madrid’s is Andrés Madrigal. Having spent two decades re-inventing Spanish cuisine, he finally opened his own restaurant a couple of years ago to rave reviews and a well-deserved Michelin star. With market-fresh ingredients and an emphasis on seafood (though other dishes like slow-cooked rabbit are on offer – and very good, too) the menus are in constant flux, with the two floors of his art-filled space often packed with gastro-pilgrims out for the next big thing. And the next big thing is in abundant supply here, as Andrés often lends the space to other experimental chefs as a kind of testing ground for new ideas.
