Curious about Pe’s favorite New York or Madrid restaurants? Well here is a little excerpt from Blackbook she said at the New York Film Festival premiere of Broken Embraces:
Favorite restaurant in New York?
“Oh, I have many because I love food so much!”
And in Madrid?
“I go to many that are out in the countryside, but whoever goes there for the first time should go to Botin. It’s the oldest restaurant in the world.” What did you like about it? “Everything!” – Penélope Cruz
Pedro Almodovar said NY’s Mr. Chow’s and in Madrid “Casa Lucio is one of my favorites.”
(El favorito de Penélope Cruz, Gwyneth Paltrow (justjared.buzznet.com/…/), Paulina Rubio,(www.tmz.com/category/food-glorious-food/), etc., etc.
“Everyone from Ava Gardner, Bill Clinton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, David Beckham to the King of Spain etc (and of course the many locals) have passed through its doors to experience the typical Madrid institution which is Casa Lucio. If the owner Lucio is in the house, and he usually is, (although lately he hasn’t because he suffered a heart attack) he will come out and speak to the diners, and it is his charm and friendliness that has endeared him to famous and non-famous alike.”[—][www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g187514-d…]
