Chef Albert Adrià, like any great film,wants his restaurants to surprise, stir emotions and, of course, entertain. He views each of his dramatically different eateries—an experimental cocktail bar, a taqueria, a vermouth bar, a tapas bar, a Japanese-Peruvian restaurant—as if he is a film auteur experimenting in disparate genres. Yet in 2014, despite being awarded an impressive number of Michelin stars, the extremely modest chef felt that he still had not created his Citizen Kane. That is because for over two decades he labored as the pastry chef under the leadership of his older brother, Head Chef Ferran, at elBulli, considered the greatest restaurant in history. Now with his newest creative endeavor, Enigma, on the horizon, Chef Adrià hopes to finally step out of his brother’s shadow and reimagine the entire dining experience from the ground up. Featuring mouthwatering dishes and heightened kitchen drama, Constructing Albert is an intimate journey through the world of a true culinary visionary.
