How to Measure a Storm’s Fury One Breakfast at a Time
Article by: Valerie Bauerlein, The Wall Street Journal
Catalonia, Spain- World renowned restaurant, elBulli, is slated to reopen as a culinary academy in 2014. Chef Adrià is faithfully lauded by his culinarian peers for his gastronomic creativity, perfectionistic traits, and ability to lead his kitchen. The seasonal hot spot, which seats only 50 people an evening, has not turned a profit since 2000. This is not for lack of interest. elBulli, seasonally, serves around 8,000 guests, but receives reportedly over two million reservation requests a year. This three-star Michelin restaurant has gained notoriety by winning first place in S. Pellegrino’s “World’s Best 50 Restaurants” five times since 2002, allowing Adrià alternative profits from the restaurant’s brand. elBulli has served as the ultimate capstone for aspiring chefs to stagiaire before knifing their own way to the culinary crest. When elBulli resumes, Chef Adrià will instruct kitchen crews without the pressure of serving diners.
