Despite the fact that it is falling, the Madrid hotel company does not give up its effort to reinvent itself and more and more restaurants are opening their doors, either in the capital or in the Community.


Inspired by the most talkative, witty, and mustachioed of the Marx, the new establishment of El Pradal Group (the sixth already) was born with a carefree and fun spirit, and it is the first of a family of locals who will pay tribute to famous American comedians. With a somewhat more irreverent air and playful than his older brothers (Dogma, Noi, El Clsico, La Casita del Pradal, El Pradal), has three spaces -bar, living room and large terrace-, where the classic and the contemporary shake hands: cornices and tabernary moldings share the limelight with mustard-colored benches, ceramic tiles and drink displays.

In gastronomy, the bet focuses on the season, organic, ecological and proximity products with which an informal menu is formed, with dishes to share and stew stews, rooted in tradition. Thus, they are essential of this house of San Sebastián de los Reyes, classics of the national cuisine, such as the Russian salad, the croquettes, the torreznos, the castizas bravas or the pisto and more substantial recipes such as the hock, the oxtail or free-range chicken.

The culinary menu revolves around the traveler and the Mediterranean. In this way, a Russian salad with prawns and a crispy shrimp omelette shares the limelight with some truffle crumbs sautéed in the wok or some dumplings of old clothes with stew broth; or the idiazbal croquettes and pions with quince cream can give way to a lamb shank with peanuts and sage. In the liquid offer, more than 120 references international and national, including small producer labels, and homemade verm, one of the house hits … And in the shaker, a dozen signature mixes, apart from the classics.

Gastronoma and more. That is the philosophy of this cute establishment of two floors, which has in the slow food (that kitchen made with time and care and respectful of nature and animals) its common thread. In the lower area, a cover selection, such as duck breast spheres or a mar y montaa of bacon and squid; wines; verms and cocktails. In the one above, the dining room proper, whose menu is divided into four sections: land (products from the garden, such as a burrata salad with zucchini bows); water (marine dishes, for example, confit cod with creamy piquillo and chorizo); air (rice) and fire (where meats make their way: rib eye with smoked potato or steak tartare de monte with chestnuts and mushrooms).

And, with the name of the restaurant, the “ms” that we said at the beginning has to do with art, since every two months it will host a painting or photography exhibition, for example, the current one: a choral exhibition with 16 images that commemorate moments of the pandemic.

The Tavernier Madrid

We close with a place that look at the heights and the sky of Madrid and that offers spectacular views of the city. Located on the rooftop of the Innside by Meli Madrid Gran Va, it was born – like its older brother Corus with the same name – with the aim of transferring to the Forum the spirit of the old port taverns of the popular Coruesa Marina. The Tavernier is inspired by a sailor -Breixo- who, after sailing for decades, decided to stay on land and show the recipes and spirits he met on his travels.

The menu, conceived for the pecking and with a bet for the Galician, offers, among other recipes, some creamy crawfish croquettes; a Galician taco of pork ribs with mayonnaise of padrn peppers, queixo de Arza cream and pico de gallo; a Betanzos omelette; a Galician beef carpaccio with parmesan and basil or a Galician beef cheek sandwich. Its wide liquid offer proposes from well-drawn caas, wines, sparkling and spirits to a wide variety of cocktails and verms. Address: Mesonero Romanos, 13. Closed Monday. Average price: 30-35 euros.
