El Corral de la Moreria, Spain’s First Flamenco Venue with a Michelin Star

MADRID – Workers at El Corral de la Moreria in Madrid were overjoyed on Thursday at having been awarded a Michelin star that recognized the work of Spanish chef David Garcia at the head of small restaurant that is part of one of the country’s most well-known flamenco music venues.

Garcia was welcomed back at the eatery after picking up the award at a ceremony the previous evening in Lisbon, Portugal, with chants of “Michelin, Michelin here,” as flamenco handclapping and even some song rang out.

“A unique restaurant thanks to the two completely different dining spaces within it: Tablao, from where you can watch the show; and the separate gastronomic restaurant with just four tables, where the modern cooking is built around seasonality,” Michelin said in a statement. “An impressive array of tapas, set menus and à la carte choices,” it added.

“I express myself cooking and they express themselves with music and dance, everything is real, they are our roots, our culture and our identity,” Garcia told EFE. “What we do, we do with pleasure and we genuinely give the best of our lives,” he added.

The Michelin star also acknowledges the work done by a team of 50 people who all “row together all in the same direction,” looking after customers in both sections of the restaurant-cum-music-venue, Garcia said, adding that they had previously won this year’s National Award of Gastronomy in Spain.

El Corral de la Moreria is the first eatery linked to flamenco to earn such a double gastronomic accolade.

“With four tables you can give a lot of affection to the diners, while if they were 40 you could not,” said the chef, who added that he considered it “a real pleasure to be close to customers and to go out and talk to them.”
