L’Ambassade occupies the ground floor of the building. It is a new concept created for Robuchon Madrid and consists of four of the six unique spaces developed for the capital, where customers can experience the many facets of Joël Robuchon’s cuisine in a more informal atmosphere. First, in an open kitchen concept, an in-house Showcooking experience where you can experience the magic behind each dish. It is a front row seat to watch and enjoy live the preparation of the maison’s various specialities.
On the same floor you will also find its own bakery where you can buy homemade bread and viennoiseries to take away; as well as the quiet Tapas Bar, at the entrance, where you can discover Joël Robuchon’s unique vision of the Spanish gastronomic best-seller: tapas and taste the duck confit ‘croquette’, cecina de león with toasted almonds or a delicious gilt-head bream tartare with lime.
This is also home to the classic Tea Lounge, informal yet sophisticated, which pays homage to its predecessor, Embassy, which for nearly a century gave life to this venue and its own Salon de Thé in Taipei. Scones, sweet rolls with sultanas, served with a variety of jams and creams, and a varied selection of mini sandwiches and mini pâstisseries will be the ideal selection for two people who wish to enjoy tea time in a relaxed way, accompanied by an outdoor terrace, La Terrasse, located on the Paseo de Castellana.
