I'm usually a poster on the New Jersey Board but my parents are in Madrid for 3 weeks--Dad is giving a lecture series at the Prado--and they're looking for new spots to try. They've eaten many meals at Balzac (which they feel has gone a bit downhill of late), Botin (to kick it old school), La Terraza, and the tapas bars on the street behind the Palace Hotel. There's another place, starts with a C--maybe Colimar?--that specializes in seafood, where they've eaten a few times, too. I think what they're really in search of is modern cuisine at reasonable enough prices. Yes, they can expense a few meals, but not most, so maybe 60-70euros/person would be good.
Any ideas? They'd really appreciate it, as will I! Thanks so much.
