MADRID - EL INVERNADERO RODRIGO DE LA CALLE
EL INVERNADERO RODRIGO DE LA CALLE One Michelin Star
We had an interesting and excellent vegetarian meal at this newly awarded one Michelin star restaurant run by chef Rodrigo de la Calle, who has worked at various Michelin starred restaurants over the years, especially with Martín Berasategui at his eponymous restaurant in Lasarte.
We chose the #VegetaliaPower menu at €135 (there are other menus at €95 and €65) which include, water, bread, cheeses and the pairing of their own drinks and or wines, coffees, infusions and table service.
“The aim of the kitchen is to use the vegetal nature, respect of the product, accept its temporality and evanescence & allow ourselves to be carried by the cycles of life marked by the seasons, obtaining maximum expression from them“.
To go with the plants and trees adorning the restaurant, there is also, imitation birdsong!
The food is matched with their own drinks, in this case, homemade wines like
Strawberry & rosemary wine
Fennel with Szechuan pepper & dried orange peel wine
Honey & ginger beer
The restaurant is small, with space for only five tables, each with a maximum capacity of four people.
Next to the kitchen, there are three more tables, with capacity for one or two diners. This is the best way to watch the preparation of the dishes while enjoying the experience of the food.
All in all a fantastic experience, especially if you are vegetarian!
