BREAKING NEWS: Ferran Adrià To Close ElBulli Restaurant Permanently
UPDATE 7/30/2011: Today, the last meal was served at elBulli. Ferran Adrià’s culinary academy is scheduled to open in 2014.
The reason? Apparently the cost of running the restaurant was losing him and his partner, Juli Soler, upwards of half a million Euros each year. Adrià will now devote that money towards opening a culinary academy.
