Culinary giants Albert and Ferran Adrià have revealed more details on their next major restaurant venture in Ibiza, a project they claim will be gargantuan and international in scale.
In an interview with Spanish publication El Confidencial’s Vanitatis section Albert Adrià dropped grandiose hints but few concrete details on the restaurant he’s working on with the elder Adrià brother: an Ibiza eatery that’s slated to open May 29, 2015.
The restaurant, he said, will be multi-disciplinary, international, “with a global impact.”
“It won’t be just a restaurant, but something more,” he said.
The restaurant will open for six months of the year, and the concept will undergo an overhaul every season, he added.
Moreover, the restaurant will seat 1,000 people.
“… And it won’t be just about dining. We’re going to surprise the world with a park of cultural and artistic attractions for adults,” he said.
Meanwhile, Diario de Ibiza reports that the Adrià brothers are in talks with Cirque du Soleil, which could explain the adult-friendly theme park concept.
The multi-disciplinary dining concept is in line with a growing trend in the upper echelons of fine dining that aims to elevate food to a theatrical experience that engages all the senses.
Adrià’s Barcelona restaurant 41° serves a multi-course meal alongside visual projections and a culinary soundtrack. (That restaurant will close August 2 and move to another restaurant project Enigma).
