We regret to be late giving you an answer. The demand has been again extraordinary and is difficult to go on with the management. We have found a solution and have an option for you on

(DATE) of 2009, table for 4 people at 7.30 p.m. under the name:

CHRIS POPLE


Ferran Adrià will prepare a personalized tasting menu. You will try many different elaborations and it means many different products. It is very IMPORTANT FOR HIS CONFECTION TO KNOW IN ADVANCE if some problem exists, like ALLERGIES OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT THAT WE COULD NOT INCLUDE FOR ANYONE OF YOU.


I wait your news to fix the option and also with regard to this question to fix all the details at your reservation.


I also ask you to give us a direct phone number to contact you, only if necessary, during your time in our area.




Sincerely yours,

Luis Garcia

Oh my goodness, how exciting!!! Congratulations! (I feel as if you had just announced your engagement, or that you are an expectant parent...is it sad that a mere restaurant reservation can inspire that kind of congratulatory joy?)

Ms Alex said...

Yay! I'm thrilled for you and look forward to reading about it all!

Lizzie said...

Brilliant! The only pain in the bum now, is that we have to wait so long to read about it!

Oliver Thring said...

Oh wow! I'm so jealous! Many, many congratulations, Chris.

I would say I am jealous but it's not a strong enough word. Lucky you! Congrats.

Anthony Silverbrow said...

You lucky, lucky barsteward.

Well done Chris, I look forward to hearing all about it.

Congratulations. Looking forward to reading about it.

Apparently some people become so hyperactive when they arrive there that they actually pass out... Can't wait to taste it through your words!

Chris said...

I have my sister's fiancé to thank. He deliberately picked what he thought would be the quietest time of the year (mid-week in September), and it's a trick that appears to have paid off. I'm afraid all spots are already (predictably) spoken for, but rest assured I will document it all here in as much detail as they will allow!

Howard said...

You lucky lucky man. I shall be trying the mid-week September trick myself next year.

Donna said...

hello. I just read about your successful el bulli reservation on another blog. congratulations. I tried repeatedly to get a res , calling them and emailing them, asking for whatever they could do, at any date whatsoever and didn't make it. I will keep trying. do you think a specific date works better? enjoy your dinner!

Helen said...

I know I said this twice already but - congratulations! The excitement would be too much for me. Not that I won't try next year, of course. I can't wait to hear about it - I wonder if your fingers will be able to type fast enough when you write the 'review'!

Can't wait to read your write up - how exciting!

Le laquet said...

How lucky are you?!? No, wait don't answer that!
