Lucio Blázquez runs this well-known restaurant based in La Latina neighbourhood and frequented by politicians, artists, bullfighters and even His Majesty the King of Spain (which obviously means that booking is required in order to enjoy a delightful meal here). With its 19th-century Spanish tavern-style decor and its lively atmosphere, Casa Lucio embodies the traditional values of Madrid cuisine like no other. Successful home-style cooking (from Aurelio Calderon's kitchen) based on excellent ingredients, professional staff and a comprehensive wine list.On the menu, you simply must try Madrid-style cocido (meat and chickpea stew) and their excellent Madrid-style callos (stewed tripe), but you’ll be equally tempted by their Spanish omelette with pisto (similar to like ratatouille), huevos rotos (fried eggs with ham on a bed of potatoes), stewed capon in pepitoria sauce, Lucio potatoes and, for dessert, their delicious cold rice pudding.However, its speciality is undoubtedly broken eggs, which are famous throughout Madrid. Nobody leaves Casa Lucio without trying them. It is a simple recipe, consisting of finely chopped fried eggs, serrano ham and chips, but thanks to the quality of the ingredients and the way of cooking them, they have become a delicacy.
