Casa Jorge

Top choice catalan in Madrid

Arguably Madrid's best Catalan restaurant, classy Casa Jorge serves up exquisite specialties from Spain's northwest, including caracoles (snails), perfectly executed rice dishes and, in season (roughly December to March or April), calçots con salsa romescu (big spring onions served with a tomato and red-pepper sauce); you eat the latter with a bib, and they're extraordinarily delicious.
