Adolfo Muñoz, the enterprising chef who brought Toledan cooking out of the dark ages, opened this restaurant on the sixth floor of CentroCentro in 2012. Its elegant dining room, with views over the city, serves Muñoz’s creative takes on La Manchan classics, such as partridge two ways (stewed in tempranillo wine and roasted with sherry sauce) or roast leg of lamb with mountain herbs and pisto Manchego—roasted ratatouille vegetables seasoned with sherry vinegar. The regularly changing market fish dishes are also excellent. When the weather’s fine, there’s a bar menu on the cocktail terrace, with good, but expensive, sharing plates. The croquettes or pisto Manchego are the best value. The Colección Cibeles café on the 2nd floor is less special.
