Food near Husa Paseo del Arte hotel (near Prado)

Will be in Madrid for 4 days (1 day side trip to Segovia) and would love suggestions for restaurants (not too fancy) within a 5-10 minute walk of our hotel, Husa Paseo del Arte on Calle de Atocha at Calle de la Alamdea. I've read a lot of recent Madrid posts, but most of the suggestions seem to be on Cava Baja, or near Plaza Mayor. There is a good chance that at least one night we just will be too tired to go very far, so any suggestions are much appreciated!

  1. A few suggestions:
    Samarkanda Restaurant, located in the tropical garden at Atocha Station, blends in with its surroundings: it is a British colonial-style spot standing under the modernist ceiling of the station.

    Los Zuritos, Calle Atocha 110. Tapas all the day long.
    Restaurante Sanabria, Calle Doctor Mata 3. Tapas and Spanish home-style cooking.

    1. There's a nice strip of over a dozen terrazas (restaurants with sidewalk seating) close by on Calle Argumosa. I like the tapas at El Automático (dates wrapped in bacon), but there are lots of other options (Galician, Asturiano, etc.) and you could go from place to place.

      1. Thank you so much! I'm searching the boards but if you have any other Madrid suggestions I'd love to hear. We are there 4 nights, so far I'm thinking:

        1.Cava Baja crawl
        2.Calle Argumosa (thanks!)
        3.Mercado San Miguel (lunch or dinner) What is the oyster stand called?

          I'm not sure what the oyster stand is called, but the market isn't big and it's right in the middle where the tables are on the south wall--you can't miss it. Across from it is a good cheese stall.
