From tapas to pintxos to ham cones (yes, this is a thing here), there are plenty of casual food options in Madrid. But, for an upscale dinner, we recommend El Paraguas, a white-tablecloth restaurant that serves an Asturian (northern Spanish) menu. This place is definitely pricey, but worth it if you’re looking for an elegant dinner involving dishes like spinach-stuffed king prawns and crab lasagna with sea urchin caviar. For a slightly more relaxed atmosphere, you can also eat on their covered patio.
