The Madrid Hit List, Summer 2023 Edition: Osa, La Tasquería, Toki, and More
Madrid is one of the hottest cities in Europe right now, particularly for its restaurant scene. Moving forward from century-old taverns and bars, it has managed to completely change its food scene. Yes, the Spanish capital will always be a destination for traditional tapas of fried calamari and jamón ibérico, but it’s also reaching one of its biggest culinary peaks, with offerings that explore global flavors, as well as innovative concepts that pay tribute to traditional cuisine with a modern twist.
Young entrepreneurs, fantastic bartenders, beautifully designed spaces and hard-to-score tables are all part of the equation, one that contributes to the dynamic nonstop energy observable on every street in Madrid’s city center — an energy that Madrileños know how to keep alive in each bar and restaurant. So whether it’s the flavors of Mexico channeled at Barricuda MX, a Spanish take on nose-to-tail at La Tasquería, the wine-and-cocktails bounty of Angelita, or anything else, please trust us on this — the city is the best place to eat in Spain right now. And to capture it, here’s our debut Resy Hit List for Madrid.
