Sunday arrives and with it the hangover of a luxury weekend in which we haven’t stopped burning adrenaline. You probably think it’s better to stay home resting to get ready for an unpredictable Monday morning, but I don’t think the best idea is to have ibuprofen and watch a film on TV. On Sunday we put some makeup on and visited Marieta.

Located in the middle of the Castellana and with a light many restaurants would kill for, Marieta has become, since it first opened, a place to “see and be seen”. Sometimes getting a reservation is quite complicated but when you get one you feel you are the king / queen of the world, very much like DiCaprio / Winslet on the bow of the Titanic.

This is how Marieta presents itself. Run by the same people who run Pipa & Co, who by the way have also given more personality to one of the most dynamic business areas of the city. Chef Roberto Velazquez uses unpretentious products and cosmopolitan fusion to be enjoyed in a restaurant decorated by Proyecto Singular, creating an ideal setting for a leisure experience.

A place to surrender to sushi dishes like fried calamari with homemade all-i-oli, vegetable and soft shell crab tempura with porra Antequerana (bread, tomato and peppers as the main ingredients), ribs marinated in Bourbon BBQ sauce, or marinated diced dogfish. As for desserts, don’t miss their Maria biscuits cake with chocolate and Lacasitos. On Sundays they serve a two-course brunch including mini pancakes with maple syrup and cranberries and crepes stuffed with ham, mushrooms and cream sauce with Gruyere cheese. Addictive, is not it?

If you’ve already started to salivate we also inform you that Madrid’s nights should start here, not only for the drinks and cocktails they serve after dinner but also for its spectacular terrace under a starry sky.
