Low-key Spanish restaurant Madrid is done serving tapas at 1714 Connecticut Avenue NW but may resume sending out jamon serrano, garlicky shrimp, and sparkling cava in another part of the city in the coming months.
A manager told Eater that the neighborhood eatery had closed in Dupont Circle in late January but said he was already scouting new locations. When asked whether the next generation restaurant would differ in terms of menu options, tone, or general atmosphere, the manager said it would be “the same Madrid” — just with a different address. He did not offer a finite timeline for the relocation, but said his goal is to be back in business by mid-spring.
A traditional Spanish restaurant, Madrid features all the greatest hits including patatas bravas, tortilla Espanola, ham and cheese croquettes, as well as cooked-to-order paellas featuring everything from darkly colored seafood medleys (lobster, scallops, mussels, and fish soaked in black squid ink) to seasonally inspired vegetable offerings and meaty chicken-chorizo creations.
