Member SRedw & I are getting together for lunch on Friday, February 10 at 2pm in downtown. This is open to all/any members.

Since we have a few days, any input on where we'd like to meet for lunch?

Looking forward to meeting you, Shawn! clap

Saludos, MadridMan

WHAT?! REALLY? That's fantastic, Mongo! It'd be great seeing you again.

Anyone else? Suggestions on the place?

Saludos, MadridMan

If I can make it, I'll certainly try to attend. I'll keep an eye out for the when and where. So count me in.

The Cafe de Levante under the new Hotel Victoria looks good and I have heard good things about it. I haven´t been there myself.

I would go to Levante for a drink, but the food looked less than desirable to me. Go across the street to Alhambra for Rabo del toro and a cod/tomatoe salad, think you will have a better meal.

Mongo, do you mean, per chance, the Hotel Victoria 4 on Calle Victoria, 4? If so, I spent one night at this hotel and this café, just below the hotel, is where I had their "buffet breakfast" (which turned out to be a simple continental breakfast rolleyes ). I didn't get a good feeling of its "modern-ness". It was fine but too new for my tastes.

I'd be willing to go again to the tried-and-true La Sanabresa on Calle Amor de Dios - which seems to be becoming my favorite for simplicity, location, price, and reliable food-quality.

Any other ideas? We have to decide soon!

Saludos, MadridMan

P.S. Mongo, are you staying again at the Hostal Adriano ? If so, maybe I can "collect you" (as the Brits say) there on my way to the restaurant - wherever we happen to go. I'd like to visit Alberto & Enrique there too.

MM, you are correct it is the bar adjacent to the lobby area of the hotel, the bar is kind of cool modern swank to it, but I think it is better as a bar not for a meal.

Thanks for the info/update, gregorio!

If we don't get any other suggestions let's just meet at Restaurante La Sanabresa at 2pm on Calle Amor de Dios. Sound good?

Saludos, MadridMan

If you want to try another restaurant in the same area, and similar style of cook than La Sanabresa, you can go to La Puebla @Calle Ventura de la Vega, 12.
