THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Madrid Restaurante Restaurant Review

: A chef and his business partner are carrying on an odd tradition in this garage-like space, one set by the previous proprietor, Taqueros' Guillermo Peters: they are putting out food that so far supercedes its surroundings in quality and expense that you can't help but sense that something is lopsided about the dining experience. But, once again, the food is worth the incongruity. The best dinners here begin with smooth, fruit-packed sangrĂ­a, margaritas tempered with fresh-squeezed orange juice, whole button mushrooms steeped in a garlic butter sauce, and slices of nutty Manchego cheese with olives. The main course selection is brief but solid, comprised of country-style braised dishes (rabbit in tomato sauce with olives), some seafood, and several paellas. Tapas lunches are the most economical way to eat here. The owners did spruce the place up a bit, throwing linens on the tables, painting the exposed ductwork overhead, constructing a bona fide bar and hanging a few Miro posters. Sunday's unconventional hours are 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
