Sustainability, environmental responsibility and social inclusion are the pillars on which this ambitious and essential space is built. It seems like it's come from the future, but a future that needs to be more a part of the present on Madrid's restaurant scene. This is MO de Movimiento, which opened in summer 2020 in Chamberí.
After almost a year and a half of work, along with prestigious designer Lucas Muñoz (even the rubble was used, and the restaurant's own energy systems were created), the old Espronceda Theatre and part of the former headquarters of news agency EFE have been converted into one of the most visually spectacular and magnetic places in the city.
Step in to this restaurant of some 1,000 square metres that revolve around a terrace full of Valencian orange trees, and where the menu focuses on local products, and support for small producers and artisans. The house philosophy also takes into consideration the recent disappearance of physical money and the implementation of digital menus as well as social inclusion and professional second chances.
MO de Movimiento is also an outstanding example of a positive impact (the reuse of building materials, employee uniforms, furniture...). Plus let's not forget it's a place where you eat very well, as items on the menu come from wild Iberian pigs, chickens raised on ecological grazing, organic orchards in Toledo, Zaragoza, Motril and La Vera, ecological stone-ground flours from Sigüenza and Zamora, and the list goes on.
