MADRID - RESTAURANTE NaDo
This restaurant opened in late 2020 and we went there in June 2021. It's not easy to find, as it is all below ground, in a cave like setting.
Chef Iván Domínguez, who is a native of A Coruña, has restaurants there and also in Madrid. Both under the name of NaDo, which means swim in Galician, which is where his Atlantic haute cuisine comes from. He has a great interest in the so-called discarded fish from the Atlantic, so many appear, on his menus.
We had the "Viaxe Atlánticio" menu at €60.
Sopa des verdes (green soup).
Xandia en Albariño (mackerel in Albariño) and
Xurel en vinagre Albarro XPI (horse mackerel in vinegar Albarro XPI).

All of the dishes were delicious, it was a great experience, from beginning to the end.
The service was excellent, especially in the translating of some of the Galician fish names.
