Ferran Adria to Close El Bulli Restaurant For Two Years

Ferran Adria Closing El Bulli Restaurant For Two Years

The most elusive restaurant reservation in the world just got infinitely harder. Celebrity chef Ferran Adrià has announced that his restaurant, El Bulli, will temporarily close in 2012 and 2013. "El Bulli is not closing down. I need time to decide how 2014 is going to be . . . I know that when I return it will not be the same," Adrià said at a press conference. He also spoke to the difficulties of working 15-hour days: "We deserve to lead more normal lives, because for 25 years we have been focusing on the restaurant. Now we need more time with our families." The three Michelin starred-restaurant in Roses, Spain, which was just named one of the Food & Wine's top 10 life-changing restaurants, is considered by many to be the most avant-garde eatery in the world. El Bulli will be open this year through 2011 before closing — although it only seats 50 heads a night for six months out of the year. While my chance of going has gone from slim to none, PartySugar may have better luck: she requested a reservation before the announcement! Have your hopes to visit El Bulli been deflated?

Well that is sad news, I was totally hoping to eat there soon. Guess I will have to wait. And also, he's got good reason to take time off and find inspiration...
