Chef Jordi Cruz leaves Estany Clar 2008


Recommended Posts

We have been faithful supporters of this very talented chef who worked at Estany Clar outside Berga in Barcelona province. We think his culinary contribution in Catalonia has been stellar. No longer the chef at Estany Clar, news is that he has another restaurant. He also, allegedly, served as the primary chef for the new high speed train between Madrid and Barcelona. Who knows where he might be cooking? We are very interested and curious. Judith Gebhart

Very interesting. The restaurant is apparently situated within an old monastery located not far from Manresa, home to the fine restaurant Aligue and Alicia, Ferran Adria's think tank, also located in another beautiful old monastery. I will have to make a point of getting there next time I return to visit my friends in Manresa.

Everything (the restaurant and Alicia) is in the same monastery. It is a huge complex.

Yes, it is a big complex. I visited it shortly after it was announced that Alicia would be put there and work had started on it. Alicia was a planned destination for my next visit to Catalunya, now doubly so.

I am grateful for the response to Jordi Cruz's latest location and his superb cooking. It seems that he is in full form.

I have been out of touch with eGullet contacts for some unknown reason. I am now back. I am, albeit belatedly, glad to hear about his ongoing success in Manresa. We were in that region in May, 2008 but no specific details about the restaurant were available to us. He continues to participate with Spain's greatest talents, witness the last commentary from an interested eGulleteer. Thanks for your input. Sorry I am so late to hear about his work. Judith Gebhart
