The food hall revolution continues to evolve in Spain. The culinary country first transformed their antiquated neighborhood markets into elegant food halls like Mercado San Miguel. The latest iteration, though, takes the glamour a step further with Platea; once the most stylish movie theater in Madrid, it has now been transformed into a five-level temple to cuisine. In the basement are food stalls (Japanese, Mexican and more) and gourmet cookware outlets; on the main floor are counters where you can order oysters and champagne or wine and tapas and bring them to cocktail tables. Another level up is the cocktail bar, and a movie screen still hangs over the old stage, and concerts, entertainment and vintage movies provide a festive atmosphere. Don’t miss the pastries at Mama Framboise.
