After his successful pop up at Hotel Café Royal in 2016, the famed chef Albert Adrià– who built a gastronomic revolution alongside his brother, Ferran, at the legendary Michelin three-star elBulli – returns to London to launch a permanent site, ‘Cakes and Bubbles’, this November. Adrià, who was voted The World’s Best Pastry Chef by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015, runs an empire of restaurants which range from the perpetually sold-out avant-garde tapas bar Tickets, to Hoja Santa, a modern Mexican table that was awarded a star in the 2016 Michelin guide, and his lauded latest venture, Enigma. Cakes & Bubbles marks Adrià’s first bricks and mortar establishment outside Spain. Adrià comments “I believe London is the capital of the world, and I’m looking forward to this new challenge. It’s a project that excites me as a pastry chef – I’ve never opened anything specifically related to the sweet world. Our approach and menu will be a cross between the classical and contemporary. I am looking forward to bringing this concept to Hotel Café Royal, London’s only modern grand hotel and the place I feel I belong whilst in the city”.
