Hg2 : The Hedonist


The name of this Madrid fusion restaurant, Cluny, was inspired by a tapestry portraying the five senses that particularly impressed chef Juan Carlos Ramos in the Musée de Cluny in Paris. Ramos, who formerly worked at the Café de Oriente and the restaurant of the Spanish parliament, has risen to the challenge of doing his own, imaginative cuisine at this small but exclusive restaurant.rn

The otherwise blank walls are dotted with tapestries of medieval scenes. Soft up-lighting and jazzy background music create an intimate atmosphere, while the glass frontage is frosted so you won’t feel too conspicuous at the window tables (even though that’s why some come).rn

Apart from the tapestries, the décor is modern and minimalist, and predominantly dark blue and deep yellow.  Service is attentive and friendly, but the best is saved for the presentation of the food. Each dish is immaculately arranged on plates that come in all shapes, colours and sizes. The mainly Mediterranean dishes are imaginatively created with a mix of flavours and influences from Basque and Asian traditions.rn
