It’s no surprise at all to find Chez Lorena (originally called Lorena 1989) hitting the spot between chic and descolado (cool) with pitch-perfect precision: it’s owned by the same hip cabal of owners as Bar Secreto. The restaurant, which opened in 2010, has rapidly become a favourite casual-chic dining spot and attracts thinking-man’s celebs like Philippe Stark, spotted there soon after it opened.
We recommend the ceviche and the risotto with tomato, broccoli and grilled baby calamari from the Spanish–Italian influenced menu; a seat on the front terrace for the see-and-be-seen brigade; and table at the back, intimately lit by candles at night, for those discreet about dining.
