Hot in Madrid: Platea, the New Gourmet Food Venue

Platea Madrid

Restore a beloved old cinema, recruit a handful of Michelin-starred chefs, and what do you get? An innovative new gourmet food hall that’s the talk of the town in Madrid. Situated in the stylish Salamanca quarter, Platea has quickly become a top destination for foodies since its opening this past summer.

It’s a sprawling space, encompassing almost 65,000 square feet, spread over two storeys. There are a number of eateries, including the signature restaurant, Arriba, helmed by Ramón Freixa. Other top chefs involved in the project include Paco Roncero, Pepe Solla and Marcos Morán. (Between them, they share six Michelin stars and eleven Repsol suns).

Platea Madrid

International fare runs the gamut from Peruvian to Italian, from Mexican to Japanese. Designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán created the dramatic interiors in the historic-listed building, which was built in 1952. As a coveted urban venue, Platea hosts events and offers live entertainment (like concerts and DJs) on the original stage.
