We always say that our best findings come from our friends’ recommendation. Raquel and Jaime told us about this spot in the Prosperidad neighbourhood and only a few steps away from the National Concert Hall: Lu&Cía. It’s located in a street we don’t frequently walk by, but its decoration is outstanding in this area where it’s difficult to find any “out of the regular” restaurant. It’s great to see such a cozy and beatiful place to hang out around a neighbourhood which is slowly emerging.
Behind Lu&Cía there are three sisters and two friends experts in marketing and the movie business, who only two months ago embarked on this project with a lot of ideas. Beyond decoration, in Lu&Cía you can eat incredibly good thanks to a short but well selected menu of dishes and tapas. The “huevos rotos” (fried eggs with french fries) are simply spectacular, burrata is great and you can also try some more exotic suggestions as the “tuna tataki” or the gyozas with lemongrass. We recommend to save some room for the homemade desserts, especially some of the cakes.
For less than 25€ you will have a great dinner in this place, also offering a daily lunch menu (Monday to Friday) for 12 euros, specially succesful on Fridays, the “cocido” day. In addition, they have painting and photography exhibitions. And given that the owners run a catering business, the place is also avalaible for birthday parties or any other celebration you wish to organize, they are always open to new ideas. Thursday night there is a thematic party with a special cocktail. We have already heard about the next Peruvian night with pisco sour, so follow them on facebook to stay tuned!
Lu&Cía is located in Sánchez Pacheco 48, Madrid. Metro Station Prosperidad (L4) and Cruz del Rayo (L9). Opening hours: from Mondays to Saturdays 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm and Wednesdays-Saturdays 8:30 pm – 12:30 am.
