Albert & Ferran Adrià
The Adrià brothers need no introduction; they are two of the city’s primary attractions. They changed the very shape of the gastronomic world with El Bulli, the most famous, most celebrated restaurant in the history of cooking. Though the groundbreaking El Bulli is now closed, the Adrià brothers share in the management of four new restaurants in Barcelona: a Mexican restaurant, Hoja Santa; a Peruvian-Japanese restaurant, Pakta; a tapas bar, Tickets; and a vermuteria (or vermouth bar, also serving great cured meats) called 1900. With a cocktail school and another restaurant opening in 2015, the brothers seem poised to start a new culinary revolution.
