El Celler de Can Roca is a family operated restaurant. Ran by The Roca Brothers – Joan as head chef, Jordi as pastry chef and Josep as sommelier. The restaurant is famous for its amazing dishes that tell stories and provoke emotions. The restaurant’s huge wine collection país perfectly with their gastronomic talent.
S.Pellegrina and Acqua Panna sponsored the event in which the winner was announced. Back in 2014 the brothers dropped to the second place and this year they got back into the top spot.
El Celler bumped last year’s victor. Copenhagen’s forage-friendly Noma down to third, and pipped MOdena, Italy’s, Osteria Francescana into second. This event is seen by some as the Oscars of the fine dining world.
The head chef Joan Roca i Fontane received the prize and dedicated it to those around him. He also said “this success is also for our family, thanks family for your patience, for our wives, our kids, also our team — the best team in the world.”.
Below you can see the number 43. This is a place I actually have quite close to my home. Last time asked about the place they said you need to book for about 2 months in advance. Not sure if I could handle that. When I’m hungry I want to eat directly and not in 2 months time. May be I’m not the best selection of clients for them. Though every time I’ve passed by they seem to be really busy and full.
