El Invernadero Opens in Madrid

Spanish chef Rodrigo de la Calle has finally returned to the city of Madrid, bringing his Michelin-starred restaurant El Invernadero with him to a location on Ponzano, 85, in the city’s Chamberí neighborhood.

 

It has been a long wait for fans in the Spanish capital of this vegetable-loving chef, who has spent the last couple years in a unique but limited space in the town of Collado Mediano, north of Madrid. Now installed in his new location – which opens on May 31 – the chef will open the offering to a maximum of twenty diners (up from six in the previous location) in a space that features two different bars and an area with tables.

The culinary journey will begin at the first bar, near the door, where diners will start the meal with a selection of “snacks” that welcome you to the restaurant. The second bar is inside, and forms the bridge between the dining room and the open kitchen, where guests can watch the team in action through a large window.

As in the previous location, the team is the same for kitchen and dining room, and diners can choose from a new, seasonal menu called Vegetalia, which, though based on vegetables, can be extended with the addition of meat, fish, shellfish or cheese. The length of the menu – which can also stay 100% vegetarian – varies from person to person, depending on their needs. The shorter version costs 95 euros, while the longer, Vegetalia Power menu is priced at 135 euros per person.

In addition to the food, de la Calle also extends his love of the vegetable world to the drink selection, which includes a huge variety of options that include herbal foams, teas, infusions, kombucha, kefir, fermented vegetables, smoothies and more, as well as the first harvest of strawberry, lemon or parsnip wine, in addition to a rotating wine menu.
