If you like food with wit and panache, you’ll love chef Abraham García, who blogs about food in the online edition of El Mundo. A film buff, he named the restaurant after the 1961 Luis Buñuel film. (Stills from Buñuel films line the walls.) The look is almost bistro-casual, but the food is creatively prepared, imaginative, and delicious. Ask for fish and you’re likely to get a composed plate like grilled butterfish with baby peas, roasted sweet potato, and an almond-garlic sauce. For meat, he might sauté a pork sirloin and serve it with Sicilian dried tomatoes, spring onions, and spiral pasta.
