Lunch at Restaurante Botín, Oldest in the World

To celebrate Miriam's birthday, we took her Restaurante Sobrino de Botín, the oldest restaurant in the world. The Botín opened in 1725 on Calle del Cuchillero, Madrid, Spain, and has been in operation ever since then.

This is the ordinary-looking front to the restaurant:

A window at the restaurant displays the Guinness World Records Certificate:

Miriam and Beverly pose in front of the restaurant, with the Guinness certificate behind them:

The three of us chose a table downstairs, because the basement gives a better feel for the age of the restaurant:

Miriam ordered baked chicken:

 Beverly ordered chicken Fricassee:

Scott ordered the specialty of the house, the suckling pig:

The food was expensive but not great (after all, we were paying mainly for the privilege of saying that we ate at the world's oldest restaurant). The main thing is that we had a great time!
