If you’re looking for a sophisticated lunch or dinner in Madrid, look no further than Cilantro Gastrobar. We stopped by for lunch one day after reading a little bit about the place on Conde Nast and of course, they were spot on. This place serves some really nice food that makes for pretty pictures and a satisfied belly.
Ever since we first read about The Spotted Pig restaurant and chef April Bloomfield in The New Yorker nearly two years ago, we’ve wanted to go! We finally got our chance a few weeks ago when we were in town for a wedding.
The Gabardine is tucked away in the heart of the 9 to 5 Bay Street jungle, underneath a construction awning canopy and next to a 7-11. Once inside, time all at once slows down and you will be standing in a gastropub minus the pretension. Alison Mackenna, one of the founding staff (along with Katherine Rodrigues and Chef Rodney Bowers), welcomed me in and kept friendly company all evening.
