Introducing Benares Madrid.
Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star in the world, has introduced his fine fair in a step to place Madrid as the gastronomic capital of Southern Europe.
The style of the new restaurant follows the same recipe as Benares Restaurant Mayfair, with a unique décor and a menu that comprises of Indian cuisine and local products. In Madrid’s case, as before, it combines high-quality local ingredients with the traditional techniques of Indian cooking. But rather than create a carbon copy of his wildly popular Benares in London’s Mayfair neighborhood, Atul has eagerly enhanced his repertoire of modern Indian cuisine with the delicacies of the Spanish larder. Hence, you’ll find starters like pekorah with boquerones (anchovies) and Spanish staples like calamari and octopus on the menu.
The team in Madrid is formed by Vincente Gorriz, General Manager of the restaurant; Antonio Lima, Front of House and Juan Belmonte, Sommelier, and will is located on Calle Zurbano, considered by some to be one of the best streets in Madrid.
With the addition of a show cooking space, an exclusive chef’s table and an outdoor terrace space, Benares Madrid no doubt feesl right at home in the Spanish capital.
Order the six-plate (not counting the amuse bouche and petit fours) tasting menu for 65 euros or opt to add wine pairings for an extra 30. On the à la carte menu, starters average 20 euros and mains—including “Atul’s Signature Curry” (lamb Rogan Josh with saffron and fennel)—are about 30 euros.
