El Bulli, World Famous Catalan Restaurant, Closed Permanently
So says this story in the New York Times.
Often called the world’s greatest chef, Ferran Adria has decided to permanently close his restaurant, El Bulli, north of Barcelona, Spain, in the town of Roses.
n January, Adra said the restaurant would temporarily close in 2012 for several months while he and his chefs reframed their concept and developed new avante-garde cooking techniques.
On Friday, according to the NYTimes story, Adria “decided to close the restaurant for good because he and his partner, Juli Soler, had been losing a half million Euros a year on the restaurant and his cooking workshop in Barcelona.
“At that level of contribution,’’ he said of the losses, “I think we would rather see the money go to something larger that expands the concept and spirit of what El Bulli represents.’’
Anybody eaten at El Bulli and care to comment on their experience?
