World's Top Restaurant Closes For Two Years

World's Top Restaurant Closes For Two Years

Ferran Adria, the chef at El Bulli restaurant in Spain, has announced at Madrid Fusion (an internationally culinary conference) that El Bulli will close for two years in 2012 and 2013 giving him a chance to take a sabbatical.

El Bulli has been repeatedly voted the world's best restaurant (measuring the quality of restaurants is a somewhat inexact science, I would say). It serves up "experimental" cuisines such as, turtle dove with blackberry caviar and duck foie gras candies.

Tables for its six month annual season sell out in just one day.

Free Advice

Free Advice

Here is some free advice to those new to the restaurant business (such as the four week old establishment that we visited last weekend):

1 Wipe your faux marble table tops down properly, stains from previous diners are not very appetising.

2 Serving me pigs' trotters that were first cooked 4 days earlier (ie that have therefore been reheated a few times), is unwise; they were most assuredly stale.
