Every Sunday, the InterContinental Madrid’s classy lobby is magically transformed with conversation areas swapped out for a massive round table overflowing with brunch fare — from sassy soups to hearty roasted chicken to strawberries dipped in chocolate. To set the mood for this daytime dining extravaganza, a tuxedoed pianist masterfully plays Mozart while elegantly dressed waiters busily attend to every diner’s needs. Just leave room for the créme brulee.
