I'd put this on my list of restaurants to check out in Madrid after seeing rave reviews on the Spanish El Tenedor site. I knew from those reviews that the restaurant offered only a tasting menu (with some choices to suit your preferences), that the dishes were traditional (in some cases, based on... read more
