Following the success of the Tomate restaurant, Barcelona’s Grupo Tragaluz has just opened their second restaurant in Madrid Luzi Bombon, a contemporary brassirie that is all the rage now in the capital.
The warm and bright decoration by Sandra Tarruella is a highlight, with wood and large windows and 1950’s-style touches, The open kitchen is run by chef Gerardo Renart, who has a pretty clear idea of what’s important: simplicity and top quality raw materials. Under this premise, he created a menu with an outstanding Mediterranean approach.
The friendly waiters will bring the menu in a wooden lectern to comment on the menu with your companion. Then they will introduce you to thier Barra Fisch, a must with spectacular oysters and king crab perfect to start the evening. Other starters also include burrata with rocket, fried artichokes , lobster ceviche with tiger milk or salad with duck, dates and kikos. As in any good Mediterranean restaurant, the menu includes coal-cooked rice with sausage, mushrooms and asparagus, and meat and fish dishes with side dishes to choose between classic French fries, wild rice with vegetables and mustard or creamy truffled potato puree. The menu also features Italian dishes such as duck cannelloni au gratin.
Luzi Bombon doesn’t close between lunch and dinner, so if you feel like eating something anytime of the day you can order oxtail sandwich or a sirloin steak sandwich at a table or at the bar. The restaurant also offers a well assorted wine list with a selection of champagnes. At midnight, lights are turned down, a DJ provides the music and cocktails are served, including their own creations Bloody Bombon or Pisco Luzi.
Quality, exclusivity and good taste at Luzi Bombon!
