Chef Adria,

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us.

Your restaurant is located on a gorgeous bay, the kind of place that would inspire artists of all types.

What role, if any, does location play in the food, and the experience of El Bulli?

Kindest Regards

There are an amazing number of variables in play when you decide to go to a restaurant. When you analyze them, it’s breath taking: why you go, who you go with, what are you looking for, what’s your physical condition, how is your partner. If it’s a business meal, how much the other people enjoy food. All of this influences the final decision. Location is another variable of the equation.

Coming back to elBulli and its location, my cuisine wouldn’t have been what it is today were elBulli been located elsewhere.
