The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Test Your Stamina in Madrid


2. Where to Eat

The dining room and storefront at Taberna Matritum.  

Eat dinner late at Taberna Matritum, where the curated tapas menu is paired with 427 bottles of wine and the kitchen is open till 12:30 am.

Mix high and low at Philippe Starck’s latest design venture, Ramses, where graffiti and steampunk flourishes meet avant-garde cuisine. The former warehouse serves bubble-gum-flavored vodka cocktails and entrées like white hake atop potato foam.

Make a reservation a few weeks in advance for a table at La Terraza del Casino, Ferran Adrià's more accessible companion to gastro-temple elBulli. Molecular specialties at the Michelin-starred restaurant include brioche with marrow topped with Beluga caviar, paella of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, and licorice cake with iced chocolate for dessert.
