Easily the city’s most elegant dining room, Pardo arrays black tables clad in white linen beneath very contemporary sculptural chandeliers. In the 3 decades since Ana Gago and Eduardo Pardo founded the restaurant, it’s become known across northern Spain for elegant presentations of innovative seafood dishes. These might include such delights as sea bass braised in crab cream, pan-fried monkfish medallions, or the famous house caldeirada (seafood stew) based on monkfish and earthy Galician potatoes. Galician beef is famous throughout the country, and Pardo does a primo sirloin steak with foie gras.
