On 5 May we will pay tribute to our mothers in many ways, but one of them will be by enjoying an evening with them in one of these restaurants where we can intensify that emotional connection around gastronomy. From the most sophisticated to the most informal experience (tattoo included): this post is dedicated to all mothers.

Cornamusa (Madrid)

In this restaurant located at the top of the Palacio de Cibeles, you can book an exclusive date with your mother to enjoy the cuisine of chef Manuel Berganza, executive chef of Azotea Grupo, and Jesús Almagro, head chef of Cornamusa.

This is a proposal in which they bring out the best of Madrid’s gastronomy through dishes such as Guadarrama beef sirloin with mustard emulsion, mushrooms and roasted marrow; smoked rice and goat’s cheese with veal tendons and roasted beetroot; Aubergine, mushrooms and truffle made into a cannelloni, pine nuts from Castile and truffle flakes; or black monkfish with Miraflores butter sauce and caviar, among many other dishes with which to delve into Cornamusa’s exquisite traditional tribute.

Where can you find us? Plaza de Cibeles, 1.

SLVJ (Valencia)

On the occasion of Mother’s Day, the SLVJ restaurant in Valencia has created the ‘Hana Menu’ structured around iconic dishes from SLVJ’s gastronomic imaginary. Among them, the Glazed and Spicy Edamame, Spicy Salmon Roll, Dinamita Roll, Tuna Tiradito, Truffled Mushrooms Dumplings or Wok Rice with Duck.

A high-end proposal to be accompanied with the Naya cocktail, with Vodka, cranberry juice, Maria biscuit syrup, raspberry and lemon puree, designed to be enjoyed with the Amaki dessert: a smooth ganache, creamy raspberry Valrhona chocolate and almond financier accompanied by red fruit sorbet with champagne.
