Fodor's Expert Review Zalacaín

$$$$ Salamanca Spanish

This newly renovated restaurant, which in its heyday held three Michelin stars, introduced nouvelle Basque cuisine to Spain in the 1970s and has since become a Madrid classic. It's particularly known for using the best and freshest seasonal products available in signature dishes like steak tartare with pommes soufflés (puffed potatoes) prepared tableside. ¡Ojo! Zalacaín is back with a vengeance and ready for its close-up.
