Mushrooms Cisne Azul

19 Gravina
Madrid, 28004, Spain
TEL: 34 91 521-3799

It may not look like much, but Cisne Azul, steps from Plaza de Chueca, is a mecca for all sorts of exotic mushrooms (to eat, that is). Despite the divey mid-century-bar-meets-diner décor—bright blue walls, even brighter lighting, a soccer game on in the corner—you’ll be elbow-to-elbow (literally—there’s barely room to breathe) with the crème of Madrid society. Nab a table while you can and order a plate of boletus con yema (porcini mushrooms topped with a cracked egg) or chanterelles quick fried in olive oil with salt.  Fungi share billing with some unusual cheeses, like the pungent, spreadable torta del Casar from the Extremadura region of Spain.

Insider Tip:

Weekends are just too crowded; try Cisne Azul on a Tuesday for seats and a chance to talk to the owners.
