FACTS: Museum Exhibit at The Drawing Center; Soho, NYC
If you’ve ever had the privilege of dining at El Builli a) I’m jealous and b) I’d love to hear about it. However, considering that this restaurant has been closed since 2011 and will reopen as a non-profit foundation this coming year, a visit to The Drawing Center was my best and closest opportunity for experiencing such greatness.
Ferran Adria is not only a brilliant and creative chef, but he is also known for pioneering molecular gastronomy. In addition, his restaurant, El Bulli, was ranked #1 in the world five different times by the British publication, Restaurant, along with its being awarded three Michelin stars.
This exhibit encompasses sketches, drawings, objects, notes, and a slide-show presentation of Mr. Adria’s thoughts, ideas, and work. It’s a wonderful testament to his inventiveness, creativity, and overall genius.
I highly recommend seeing this exhibit.
