Feel as though you’re rediscovering your taste buds with a gastronomic tour of Catalan cuisine
Any meal that starts with four types of olive oil arranged from softest to strongest (as in most yellow to darkest) and golden-dusted nuts is going to be quite the culinary experience. After all, chef Carles Abellán trained with world-renowned and ever playful molecular gastronomy master Ferran Adrià of El Bulli. Expect to spend a substantial amount of money for dinner, but the sleek, contemporary interior and comfortably experimental food delivers and make it a meal you’ll tell people about probably forever.
Abellán plays with your palette with some unlikely pairings in his tapas (which are really like small entrees), and his dessert, which is a take on a favorite children’s snack of Maldon sea salt, chocolate, and extra virgin olive oil, is perfection. Choose a tasting menu — either grand or regular — to see (or rather, taste) the range of what Abellán can do.
