In Madrid, a New Restaurant Features a Rotating Cast of Regional Chefs


In Madrid, an ingenious new pop-up restaurant is putting Spain’s culinary talent on display by showcasing a different chef from the country’s provinces each month. The Table By, which is located in the Hotel Urso and debuted with a soft opening in late 2014, changes completely with the arrival of each new chef, down to the wine list. The visiting chef also gets free rein to redecorate the dining room in the style of his or her restaurant. “The project is fantastic because in a homogenizing world, it champions the riches of Spanish regional cooking and produce,” says Marcos Cerqueiro, whose Abastos 2.0, a restaurant in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, served as The Table By’s debut offering.
