Humo is an a la carte grill restaurant with a somewhat separate restaurant Abajo in its basement (pictured) that offers a tasting menu, with up to ten diners sitting around an open kitchen. The dishes were a bit erratic, as often happens with tasting menus, but there were a couple of genuine high points.

L’Amorosa is the neighbourhood restaurant that everyone would like but very few have. In this case it is a chef who earned a Michelin star for many years, now cooking simpler food but with the same skill. In particular, the saffron risotto this week was genuinely top drawer, silky rich and gorgeous.
