Ever since Zalacaín was downgraded in 1995, there was not a single 3 starred restaurant in Madrid. Until now! David Muñoz' Diverxo just received the top three star rating.
The tiny place has nothing in common with a classic 3-star: located in a lifeless neighborhood, no silver cutlery nor refined porcelain here.

There is no à la carte menu at Diverxo, only 3 tasting menus: ExpresXO with 7 dishes, ExtenXO with 9 dishes and DiverXO with 12. Prices vary from 100 to 200 euros, drinks not included.
