I apologize for repeating what I have written before, but I would like up-dates on the following restaurant suggestions. We will stay at the Ritz and spend a lot of time at the museums and in Salamanca window shopping. We dine early by Spanish standards and I doubt we will be up for much nightlife.

general:
Casa Lucio, Cava Baja 35 913658217*
Chocolatería San Ginés, Pasadizo San Ginés 5 913656546*
Maceiras, Huertas 66 914295818*
Taberna de la Daniela, General Pardinas 21 915752329 (cocido)
Ventorrillo Murciano, Tres Peces 20 915288309 (paella)

tapas:
Casa Lucas, Cava Baja 30 913650804
Tempranillo, Cava Baja 38 913641532*
Txirimiri, Humilladero 6 914014345

Naveira do Mar, Santa Juliana, 57 914594532
Taberna del Puerto, Fernán González 50 915046699

Frontón, Tirso De Molina 7 913691617
Imanol, General Díaz Porlier 97 913090859

Starred entries appear to be universally recommended. I listed a specialty if I knew it.

Two service stops I have heard about are

Burgos, Cedaceros 2 915211891 (shirts)
Moderna, Alcalá 121 914353749 or Ortega y Gasset 61 914015769 (barber shop)

Whatever locals can add or recommend, I would be very grateful.

    My favourite local restaurant is La Cazorla - it's on the corner of C/Maldonado and C/Castello´ - 915627288. The food is Andaluza - mixed fried fish (very fresh), salads, meats, revueltos, mariscos. I take everyone who visits me here - it's never failed to please; rustic cooking very well done.
    It's very popular with the locals at both lunch and dinner. If you go - beware the portion size; any starter (racion) is intended to be shared - they are huge. I would add that this restaurant is extremely reasonably priced.

      The original post is about a year old. I am sure that OP has already returned from their trip.

        Thanks PBSF - it popped up as new on the board, and I didn't check the date.
