Ferran + Albert Adria to open casual resto in Barcelona in October

I am trying to come to grips with folks' obsession with 41.

Thanks for the write up, good reading. I don't know if you really want answers for the rhetoric but I'll bite in a sense of discussion. I guess on my part it's for the exact same reasons you've picked out in your post I want to go 41 Degrees, namely Adria food, the night turned over to the chefs and the sense that the place is trying to do something more than just serve food on a table.

Why one over the other? It's just a case of trying the most varied amount of dishes. Would love to go Tickets too, but trying to get a booking lined up for both at the same time would prove near impossible I imagine. Surely you're at least intrigued to try it out if Tickets is your idea of restaurant heaven? Your post was more passionate than most I read on here, I can't imagine loving work by anyone who creates and not wanting to experience what else they've done.

As for the serious tone, they list the soundtracks to Delicatessen and Amelie on the restaurants play list, I hardly reckon this is going to be El Bulli. Sure it could be called an obsession staying up to get a booking for a restaurant, but what makes that any different to concert/theatre tickets.

Anyway I managed to get a date in the end for a few weeks time, no blogging, no banker to show off to, just the experience and a maybe a 42nd course of Viagra if the Mrs is willing after all that food...

Looking to get a reservation for either Tickets or 41 for a trip in July. I know that Tickets reservations start 2 months in advance. 41 claims 90 days on their online booking page, but they also say 100 seats, so I'm not inclined to believe that information very much. And someone below said they were releasing for April in Mid-March? Does anyone have any solid information? Is there a specific time of day tickets are released? I'd read 12 am in one place, i'm seeing 12 pm below... any tips?
