A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Picoroco, en el barrio de las Salesas de Madrid, es un buen representante de la gastronomía vasca, siempre garantía de sabor, buen producto y buena mano en los fogones. Itxaso Elósegui, la chef, aporta su toque personal a unas recetas tradicionales con mucha cuchara, mucho guiso, mucho fuego lento, poca fusión y poco postureo. Sabe seleccionar la materia prima y, mejor aún, sabe cómo tratarla, de ahí que sirva platos de sabores potentes: pimientos de piquillo rellenos de morcilla con jugo de carne, arroz meloso de cigalas, chipirones en su tinta…

Elósegui da continuidad al árbol genealógico culinario de su familia. Ahora ella ofrece aquellos platos en un local que rehúye de los interiorismos modernos, pero que es luminoso, amplio, con lámparas de mimbre y una pared de la que cuelgan boinas de colores. En esta casa de comidas, sus antepasados se sentirían a gusto porque –atención al secreto– la chef encontró una libreta en la que su madre había apuntado las recetas de su abuela. Sirve muchas de ellas en la carta y en las sugerencias del día.

    It was absolutely stunning!! Staff was so kind and helpful with us. Was so so delicious and service was extremely quick and smooth. We had 3 starters and all so good (arroz was the best one) and 4 pescados!! It's been one of the best restaurant I have ever been to! It must be tried and I am sure you will enjoy as much as we did !! Thank you very much guys for making our trip unforgettable !!

    An inviting restaurant that is larger than it looks on first entering. The staff was very attentive. The menu was described to me as Basque modern and while there are several traditional dishes (the bacalao pil pil was excellent) there are many seasonal dishes worth trying. We had a memorable starter of artichokes with Romesco sauce.
