It is one of the winners of the T de Oro de Tapas Magazine award in the Valencian Community. The restaurant is run by Rakel Cernicharo, a young Valencian chef with an overwhelming and creative personality who dares to design different dishes, strong and full of flavor. It has three menus/experiences: Fire, smoke and embers; but the undisputed protagonist of this season is the smoke. Cured, smoked, some subtle, others intense.

We are before a new Lienzo, on which is stamped a Michelin star, achieved with great effort, because here there has been no patron worth. María José Martínez is a born worker, always seconded by Juanjo Soria in the dining room, and it turns out that she has found the most flattering tonality for her cuisine. Years painting dishes with local and seasonal products, to finally round off her vegetable discourse and explode it with precise technique. Another of its singularities is the honey, because it comes from a family of beekeepers, which furrows its menu from the cannelloni snack to the honeycomb dessert.

Vaqueta Gastro Mercat
In May 2019, the Gastro Trinquet group opened the doors of this restaurant that takes its name from the vaqueta, a term that refers to both the native snail of Valencia and the cow skin with which the balls used in Valencian “pilota” (the traditional sport of the city) are lined. They have a menu based on the Valencian gastronomy, elaborated with products of proximity and with a touch of the embers, and without forgetting the rice both dry and mellow, in addition to a sushi bar with Mediterranean touches. And to close with a flourish, they offer current versions of Valencian desserts and signature cocktails.
