Chow near Madrid hotel, on Menorca, and in Barcelona near Ninot market?

Hi-I'll be in Madrid for a few days at the end of August for a meeting. It's out at the IFEMA center, while my hotel is the Hermosa Hermasillo (Hermosilla 23) so I'll be spending a bit of time on the subway... and I need to keep "reasonable" business hours in order to be up and at work by 9 a.m..... so my question is, will I be able to eat at least fairly well in my neighborhood without staying up til 1 a.m.?????
On the day the meeting ends I'm flying to Menorca for a few days before my next meeting (in Barcelona) begins. I'm staying at an agroturismo about 10 km from the main airport ( There aren't many recommendations for Menorca on the board-I'd love to hear any if someone can share. I'll have a car.
Finally, I'll fly to Barcelona, where I have a free day before going back to work. My apartment is around the corner from the Ninot market, although the meeting is at the conference center in Diagonal Mar. I know it's a hike by subway, but last time I stayed right out by the conference center and it was awful-so boring-and NO restaurants! Although I could walk to the meeting I ended up subway-ing it anyway, but at the wrong end of the day-enduring the ride after a big dinner and wine.
So is there anything wonderful in the neighborhood of my apartment? I'm really excited about -it looks darling (
) and I will be cooking a bit as well (can't wait to visit the market!)
