TOPIC: Culinary Philosophy at Disfrutar Barcelona [ Monday: 12pm ]
Eduard Xatruch (@DisfrutarBCN) met Oriol Castro and Mateu Casañas 16 years ago in the kitchen of internationally-recognised elBulli restaurant. Between 1999 and the closure of elBulli(2011) they were head chefs and part of the creative team in the restaurant kitchen.
In 2012 they decided to become business partners resulting in restaurant Compartir being born. In the heart of the Mediterranean the restaurant bases its gastronomic offer on dishes for sharing, the result of modern cuisine sprinkled with traditional dishes. With the consolidation of Compartir, in December 2014 they opened a second restaurant in Barcelona, Disfrutar (in English To Enjoy). The gastronomic line of this establishment is clearly avant-garde with strong Mediterranean roots. Disfrutar received its first Michelin Star (2015) in the Michelin Guide and was awarded with Two Suns in the Repsol Guide. In addition, the Catalan Academy of Gastronomy and Nutrition named Disfrutar “Restaurant of the Year”.
