The exhibition "Pity and Terror, Picasso's Path to Guernica" is currently on at Madrid's famous modern art museum the Museo Reina Sofía, attracting visitors from all over the globe from now until September 4th, 2017. And, in honor of this exceptional body of work, the museum's Arzábal restaurant will be offering two special menus for the duration of this exhibition.
The first of these menus will be available daily, and consists of five courses dedicated to this painter and combining gastronomic nods to his native Málaga with culinary design inspired by Picasso's artwork.
The second of these special menus is a gastronomic extravaganza that must be ordered ahead of time. The experience begins with a private, after-hours visit to the museum, and then continues with fifteen courses that merge the flavors of the Castilian plains typical of Arzábal, with inspirations from the painter's Mediterranean roots.
Opened in 2015, Arzábal Reina Sofía is located inside the museum and boasts a terrace of more than 700 m2. The restaurant is product oriented, focusing on quality, seasonal ingredients served in delectable combinations.
