Constructing Albert

Stranger Says:

After the famous sibling-run Spanish restaurant elBulli closed its doors in 2011, younger brother Albert Adrià went on a gastronomic tear, with a plan to open five very different restaurants around Barcelona at warp speed. The frenzied sequences of various opening nights make for fascinating pre-meal viewing, especially when raising the issue of whether the subject’s constant drive for invention stems from creativity—the chef himself compares it to a director making films in different genres—or something possibly less enviable. The hungry should be advised: Even at the height of the chaos, the food close-ups are practically obscene.
