Four Days in Madrid - Specific Questions

fress | Jan 24, 2014 08:38 AM

My daughter and I will be in Madrid for four nights (including the dreaded Sunday) in March. I have pored through the posts here and around the web, including the NYT article from October 2012. I have already reserved Club Allard for dinner on Tuesday night, but would appreciate further guidance for our other nights; my aim is delicious food and drink and engaging ambience, preferably with an only in Madrid flavor - cost is less important, although good value for money is greatly appreciated. The restaurants which sound most appealing for Saturday and Monday nights are O Pazo, Lua (not open Monday), Sacha and Laredo; which two of those four would give us the best diversity of Madrid dining experiences (taking into account that we're going to Club Allard)? And, of course, if you have a different suggestions for those nights, please weigh in! I have read the many posts here that explore the paucity of Sunday night options, and think that we will probably do some tapas bar hopping instead of going to one restaurant. Are many tapas bars open on Sunday night; is there a specific area which is better than others on Sunday night? And finally, we're staying at the Westin Palace, but would prefer to find nearby places for our morning breakfasts - any suggestions for atmospheric cafes with excellent coffee and pastries?
