Gresca: The 'best' restaurant in Barcelona opens in the Saint Mauro de Madrid

In the snobism of the swallows, Mauricio Wiesenthal wrote about the environments that travelers enjoyed that in the 20th century the summer passed in Stockholm and the winter in Marrakech.

Or traveled to the Sacher hotel in Vienna and knew how to appreciate the attentions of Claridge's in London. Also of those environments already lost in the mist of Old Orient Express, closer to the life of old Europe and the exotic East that of these times in which globalization has achieved that all places (lobbies, restaurants, the Cup bars) look like. They are already in Lisbon or in Hong Kong.

That lack of personality also affects the spaces of those great luxury chains hotels that after confinement have bet on Madrid. The truth is that despite investment, none of these hotels has managed to retain the personality of Madrid from past times; He who seduced Duke of Windsor or Cole Porter with his Castellana's palaces and that pigeon shot in the field of Moro in which Alfonso XIII was entertained ... or more recently to that Henry Kissinger admired by the transition.

In this line, Antonio Catalan's efforts have gone to reform the Holy Mauro erected in the Palacete of the same name as the Duke ordered to build in 1892 and that almost a century later, was transformed into a hotel.

For those who understand, the new Saint Mauro Colma the refinement of the swallows of the twentieth century - the service, the decoration (work of Lorenzo Castillo), the care of the lighting (María Covarrubias) - with the demands of the travelers of the 21st century.

At the same time it supposes the landing in Madrid by Rafa Peña, Chef de Gresca, one of the best restaurants in Barcelona. And also of the funniest where you can eat for example, foie gras, bikini of ham and comte, roasted pumpkin and burrata ...

Peña distinguishes between the two spaces of those who will be responsible in the Saint Mauro. "The Los Salon Zone is inspired by our own bar in Gresca, a Wine Bar open. Regarding food, a bistro format will be offered." This is more informal and alive. The same thing about travelers requiring pretend without that suppose a reduction of quality. In the library, also renovated, the offer will be more classic. "A la carte, with seasonal products and a more palatial inspiration." This is a great restaurant of those that Madrid always yearns despite the recent openings of other establishments. The goal of Catalan is to offer what travelers were looking for before and that happy and faldicted people who persecuted the enjoyment without metavers or virtual realities.

Catalan has taken advantage of the pandemic to remodel the garden of the hand of the landscaper Fernando Valero. The jewel of Saint Mauro - a garden in the center of Madrid - returns to flourish with a more delicate air, the families of the aristocracy before. Of those times when there was no hurry.

Lorenzo Castillo defines very well the style of which he wanted to permeate some parts of the Saint Mauro. "As if the family of the house would have wished modernized."

And that is exactly the feeling of the visitor. Entering the Saint Mauro is to return to that eternal Madrid that does not understand past times but better times. For this reason, the winks are not obviated either to that more international Madrid that does not stop being punishable. A great luxury hotel but with Spanish personality.
