La Paloma Origin
La Paloma is the result of more than 21 years collaborating of two well-known professionals in the catering trade: Segundo Alonso as Kitchen manager and Mariano Ávila as maître.
Both of them met in one of the most renownedrestaurants in Madrid where they worked for some years until they felt the necessity to face new projects and which project could be more attractive as a catering trade professional to open your own restaurant?.
For this reason, on the 8th of April of 1992, La Paloma restaurant is born. It’s name has a curious origin due to it wasn’t chosen for its “castizo” name as it could be thought (restaurant located in the middle of the Salamanca neighborhood) but the mixture of both partners daughters ( Patricia, Lorena y Marta) to form La Paloma.
Anecdotes apart, the reality was that a new restaurant came out run by two people full of excitement and experience.
The results didn’t wait long to come to life and La Paloma got quite quickly positive critic and audience recognition. A Michelin star, Campsa sun and an average score of 7,5 in the Goumetour Guide are a few of the achievements now obtained by La Paloma.
