Summary: A blend of tradition and modern flair.

El Bohio stands out in Illescas, Spain, for its unique blend of traditional Spanish flavors with a contemporary twist. The venue, established as a roadhouse, has evolved into a restaurant that retains its informal character while embracing modern culinary trends. The Rodriguez brothers, Pepe and Diego, honor their grandmother Valentina's legacy by using local, seasonal produce from the Castilla-La Mancha region. The interior is bright and fresh, featuring elegant wooden beams and stone tiling, and includes private dining areas, such as a sought-after wine cellar. Guests can choose from three menus: Tasting, Seasonal, and Menu of the Day, which showcase starters like cod stew, foie gras with sardines, and crispy beef salad, as well as mains such as veal meatballs with mashed potato, beef ribs with gnocchi and summer truffles, and chicken fricassée. The wine cellar, managed by sommelier Jose de la Fuente, offers a vast selection of Spanish wines. Desserts like hot apple pie with forest fruit sorbet and truffles with pineapple jelly provide a sweet finish. Despite its modernized look and cuisine, El Bohio maintains the homely feel of the original "mesón" and continues to adapt and delight guests with its high-concept Spanish cuisine in an elegant setting.
