IT was world renowned for its mind-blowing menus and a million-strong waiting list, but now El Bulli has closed its doors for the last time.
After 24 years the three Michelin-starred restaurant, headed by innovative chef Ferran Adria and famed for creations including smoke foam and Kellogg’s paella, has served its ‘last supper’.
The 50 lucky diners were treated to 49 courses including clam meringue and gorgonzola balloon.
Famous New York chef Antony Bourdoin, author of Kitchen Confidential, had eaten there two days earlier.
The El Bulli Foundation is scheduled to open in its place in 2014, granting between 20 and 25 annual scholarships to spend a year working with El Bulli’s staff on new creations.
