Restaurante Diverxo – NH Eurobuilding, Calle de Padre Damián, 23, 28036 Madrid – Tel: 915 70 07 66- http://diverxo.com/
He is married to TV celebrity Cristina Pedroche, which has also pushed the restaurant fame beyond to the international arena. Irreverent, very origina, distinct, and totally disruptive.
The image of the place, webpage and gastronomic proposals creates a huge impact in the visitors eyes. Very modern and different from the rest.
Restaurante El Paraguas – Calle de Jorge Juan, 16, 28001 Madrid – Tel: 914 31 59 50 –http://www.elparaguas.com

Restaurante Coque – Calle de Francisco Encinas, 8, 28970 Humanes de Madrid, Madrid – Tel: 916 04 02 02 – http://restaurantecoque.com/es/
This one I have picked it up for you despite the fact its location is in the outskirts of Madrid, the reason being, the interesting proposal they offer their visitors. The concept is a gastronomic trip through four different lounges where you will learn and tastes the influences of a Cellar, a Kitchen, a Hall and a Lounge.
It is a very particular proposal, that I thought you would enjoy.
Transfer can be easily arrange to go there. It takes around 30 minutes.
Restaurante – La terraza del Casino – Calle de Alcalá, 15, 28022 Madrid – Tel: 915 21 87 00 – http://casinodemadrid.es/nuevo/index.php
Another traditional option with an uncomparable location at the heart of the city in a Beaux Arts beautiful building. Used for high end celebrations and banquets it has a room for menú degustation of traditionsl spanish and international dishes. The room is quite something and so is the flambouyant decorations with frescos of the high ceilings from the 19th century.
Restaurante – Amazónico – Calle Jorge Juan, 20 – MADRID – www.restauranteamazonico.com – Tel Reservations: 91 515 43 32
Restaurante Streetxo Calle de Serrano, 52, 28001 Madrid –
It is an alternative to Diverxo, same concept more “democratic” since the whole action develops in front of a bar where you eat the different proposals ellaborated in their modern kitchens.

The concept of this Gastromy temple is to put together the traditional culture of Chamberí Quarter of Madrid, and its traditional tapas with a touch of modernity.
Restaurante Hortensio – Calle del Marqués del Riscal, 5, 28010 Madrid – Tel: 910 02 35 54 – www.hortensio.es
