Dusky pink peeling layers of wallpaper, floral fabrics combined with natural linen chairs and natural wood parquet floors. Light flooded rooms with the high ceilings of classic old Madrid, El Imparcial is a treat in more than one way. A warm atmosphere greets you from the bar as you walk in through to the restaurant which features natural stoneware plates are combined with bold graphic design in the menus and table settings. The room continues into an adjoing space that hosts private parties as well as a small gift shop filled with design books, and stylish local wares.
Designed by the interior design studio, Madrid in Love, it has all the touches of their successful projects. There is a certain ease they impart into more formal spaces, and just the right touches of gilt and vintage.
The crowd at El Imparcial is a varied mix between the creatives in the know, and businessmen taking an informal meeting. Recommended dishes are the fresh Burrata with tomato confit and basil, the Oxtail croquettes, and the delicious Iberian pork cheeks with mashed potato. The Panettone French toast with caramel ice cream is a perfect finish to your meal. A glass of the chilled house white wine adds the right light touch to your Spanish lunch.
