Tapas crawl in Madrid?

I love Madrid (used to live there and would move back in a minute) but could use a little refresher on the best places for tapas. I'll be in town for two nights (from a Friday-Sunday) with two close friends. We'd like to spend one evening wandering from one tapas establishment to the next. Ideally we could also find a balance between Madrid specialties, Asturian and Galacian places and a few Andalucian offerings. Any suggestions? I have been to Calle Alta/Brava before but cannot remember specific places there. Would be up for any part of the city though we're staying near the Plaza Mayor.

Thanks in advance!

    In the area of which you speak, La Latina, I liked Casa Lucas very much. Xentes was low-key and filled with locals enjoying simple and fresh Galician seafood tapas.
