Albert Adria comes to London for the first time ever with a residency at Cafe Royal. Starting in February 2016, Cafe Royal, a hotel of The Set, will present one of the most creative cuisines of Spain, the country of the new “Nouvelle Cuisine”. Albert Adria low resIn his first project outside of his home country, Albert Adria presents “50 Days by Albert Adria”, bringing the innovative and contemporary cuisine, for which Spain is famous, to the beautiful surroundings of Cafe Royal as the iconic property celebrates 150 years. Previously the haunt of famed patrons, from royalty and celebrity, to the creative and the notorious, Cafe Royal has been a landmark on the British capital’s social scene, for a century and a half. In its recent reincarnation as a luxury hotel, Cafe Royal remains an established favourite for locals, while becoming a global destination. “50 Days by Albert Adria” reinforces this vision; to craft exceptional experiences for all its guests. The ambition for Cafe Royal and the collection, The Set, is to create destinations where art, design and ideas are intrinsic to the experience of all who socialise, dine and stay at any of the hotels. As London is currently at the forefront, not only of gastronomy but also culture, art, design and luxury, the intention of Cafe Royal is to embody this and bring Albert Adria’s vision to this already dynamic city. Albert, who is considered by his brother, Ferran, to be “one of the best chefs in the world”, and his team have crafted a unique and entirely new dining experience for London. The journey will begin in the opulent Oscar Wilde Bar with a selection of cocktails and signature snacks and will end in the stunning surroundings of The Domino Restaurant. Furthermore, an exclusive list of cocktails has been designed that will be available until the end of the 50 Days Residence in the Oscar Wilde Bar. For 23 years, Albert Adria worked together with his brother Ferran, at elBulli, but when the restaurant closed in 2011, he started his own journey with the opening of Tickets, a combination of Catalan and Spanish cuisine with flavours from all around the world, where tradition and modernity hold hands.The Domino restaurant Hotel Cafe Royal Sauce Communications In this year’s edition of the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants, the restaurant Tickets features on the list and Albert himself was named “Best Pastry Chef in the World”, as a tribute to his career.
