Fodor's Expert Review Ruta del Azafrán

$$ Albayzin Spanish

A charming surprise nestled at the foot of the Albayzín by the Darro—this sleek contemporary space in the shadow of the Alhambra offers a selection of specialties. The menu is interesting and diverse and includes dishes like chicken pastela, tuna tataki (a method of pounding fish in Japanese cuisine) with pineapple, and several different risottos. There are also three tasting menus (from €30). Steel furniture and a black-and-red color scheme contribute to the air of sophistication. The kitchen is open 1–11 pm (until midnight in summer).
