Foodies around the world have clamored for a taste of Ferran Adrià’s cooking at El Bulli, the restaurant he’s worked at since 1984 and that he’s transformed into a palace of modern cuisine, particularly in recent years as his fame has grown to international proportions.
Despite the $650 price tag (not including wine or plane tickets to Barcelona) experiencing the formal, hours-long tasting menu there became the holy grail of the food-obsessed, and never more so since Adrià announced that the restaurant will be closing next year to focus entirely on lab experiments in molecular gastronomy.
On January 12th, however, he revealed the first of two restaurants that will take its place: 41 Degrees, a tapas bar in Barcelona serving cuisine far beyond the usual gambas al aijillo—think crisp mangoes with tagete flowers, crunchy tomatoes with basil butter, cornets of salmon roe with egg yolk, and black-olive cake—for a price similar to American tapas.
We’re waiting with bated breath for Tickets, the other restaurant scheduled to open next door, to reveal it’s secrets later this year as well.
