You’ll need to reserve about 90 days ahead to enjoy some of the legendary Adrià brilliance. This is sophisticated food at its most playful with plenty of nods to El Bullí, Ferran Adrià’s food mecca that closed in 2012. The décor is fun and quirky and reminiscent of a circus, with red and white striped awnings, theatre lights and a greeter in top hat and tails. These are tapas to really savour, from El Bullì’s iconic spherical olives and air baguette to newer creations, such as the mini airbags with manchego cheese and oysters with a ‘pearl’ of seawater.
