Madrid's Best Restaurants and Bars

Lhardy, the 19th-century gem at Carrera de San Jerónimo 8, is another establishment where customers can dine in or take out. On the elegant ground floor, guests (elderly ladies tired from shopping, well-heeled Madrileños assembling chic picnics) serve themselves hot consommé from huge silver urns, sip sherry, and munch on the best finger sandwiches ever. In the dining room above, it is said that the fate of Spain was decided many times, probably over a bowl of cocido, a smoky stew of chickpeas, meats, and sausages that is de rigueur at Sunday lunch (522-2207; sandwiches from $1).
