With its extensive spread of Spanish-influenced cuisine, Madrid squeezes in alongside other Columbus-area food spots as part of the Daeoh Restaurant group, which also includes Black Olive and Two Fish Bistro. The group's newest addition, Madrid, sustains Daeoh's international theme with lunch and dinner menus stocked with specialties such as tapas plates and wonton tacos. A world plates section of the menu even treats diners to the likes of spaetzle, serrano ham, and teriyaki-barbecue-sauce consommé, representing many countries and giving eaters the momentary ability to speak their languages.
At Shoku, morsels of succulent beef, marinated chicken, and ocean-fresh seafood fill out feasts of Japanese noodles and sushi or dishes inspired by national favorites of Asian nations including Korea, China, and Thailand. Broth-soaked udon noodles jostle for attention with plates of pad thai, pan-fried pot stickers, and bowls of sizzling beef bulgogi. Guests take a seat inside to watch a master chef deftly carve seafood at the sushi table, or they can lounge under umbrellas at the outdoor seating to watch the passing foot traffic and hourly soapbox derbies along Grandview Avenue.
