(AP) MADRID - Spain’s famous elBulli restaurant will temporarily reopen later this year as renowned chef-owner Ferran Adria trains actors for a movie based on his iconic but shuttered eatery.
Lucky gourmands will dine at the seaside Mediterranean landmark or in Hollywood if a decision is made to recreate the restaurant there.
ElBulli closed in July 2011 after maintaining an almost unattainable Michelin three-star status for over a decade. It was rated the world’s best restaurant five times by British magazine The Restaurant, with Adria often cited as the planet’s most talented and imaginative chef.
Adria told The Associated Press on Thursday that meals will be served to clients during the training sessions. A lottery system is possible for the general public, or Adria and movie executives could pick the diners.
