I just want you to anticipate that we're considering taking a Sabatic year: closing on October 2006 and reopening on March 2008. What would Michelin do? Who knows?

PS: You haven't asked about elBulli's dining room. Now it's an avant-garde dining room.

I was planning on coming again in 2007, but I'm glad I got a reservation for next year. There will be a lot of disappointed people as there must have been when you stopped serving lunch, but you deserve a break and it will be intersting to learn what you do with your year away from elBulli.

Now tell me about the changes to the dining room, or should I look the other way and be surprised when I arrive?
