MADRID In the La Mo­raleja neigh­bour­hood lies Los Peñotes gar­den and land­scape de­sign cen­tre, which has con­verted three green­houses into a café and brasserie called El In­ver­nadero (‘green­house’ in Span­ish). Peck­ish plant shop­pers can or­der botan­i­cally in­spired break­fast, lunch or din­ner from a comfy seat on the wicker chairs or cork-topped stools atop white ter­razzo floors (elin­ver­naderode­lospenotes.es). BER­LIN Pots­damer Strasse’s new restau­rant and bar, Panama, is named after the chil­dren’s story Oh Wie Schön Ist Panama (Oh How Beau­ti­ful Panama Is) by au­thor and il­lus­tra­tor Janosch. Ger­man in­gre­di­ents are mixed with flavours from the restau­rant’s Caribbean name­sake. The in­te­rior, mas­ter­minded by de­sign­ers Nora Witzig­mann and Karo Butzert, com­bines lo­cal art with cacti from Ari­zona (oh-panama.com). PARIS Madame Thiou is Paris’ author­ity on mod­ern Thai cook­ing, and her restau­rant’s new home on a leafy av­enue with im­pres­sive views of Les In­valides is a must-visit. De­signer Laura Gon­za­lez (who shares her in­sider tips on p67) aimed to cre­ate the feel­ing of be­ing in Ms Thiou’s own din­ing room. From vel­vet chairs and brass lights to a fresco by su­per-cool wood mu­ral­ists Ate­lier Roma, it’s a de­light (restau­rant-thiou.fr).
