Carles Abellan

Carles Abellan

Like so many other notable modern-day chefs, Abellan started out in the kitchen of El Bulli—and has since built his own culinary empire. The first piece of this kingdom was the phenomenal Comerç 24, followed by Bar El Velódromo and Tapas 24, both of which attracted a young crowd thanks to a very personal approach to tapas. Their success pushed him toward opening his most recent restaurant in the Vela Hotel, Bravo. He has so many projects going on that it is difficult to follow his tracks, but a visit to Tapas 24 (go early, they don’t take reservations) will be all you need to recognize his talent.
