    Default el Bulli closes permanently

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandsty...loses-el-bulli


    I have seen various shows on this restaurant and on it's chef, Ferran Adria.
    Interesting concept, just not marketable...and I think, a bit to high-brow
    intellectually.

    I read just a few days ago that it was closing for two years and
    reopening with a different focus.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    The original plan was to close for 2 years, restructure and then reopen.
    It was released just yesterday that it would close for good and Adria would
    open a cooking school.

    Well, damn. I had more or less been planning to go there sometime;
    due to the long winter closings each year it had not thus far
    corresponded with any of my visits to Spain. I guess I have
    blown it.

    I felt it was perhaps one of the few truly unique contenders for
    best restaurant on the planet.

    Look at it this way, Steve... you can get foam in Las Vegas now.

    Hmm. I am much more likely to find myself in Spain than in Vegas. :-)

    I've had Bulli-style foam at restaurants in Barcelona ... but
    the short opening season, and the fact it's in the middle of
    nowhere, kept me from hitting up Bulli itself. Oh well.

    I don't think that "hitting up Bulli" was really an option--it's my
    understanding that you made a reservation years in advance.

    In any case, it appears that the reports of its demise were greatly
    exaggerated.
