Haha, very nice article, Susana. Ferran Adria is becoming a real vedette here in Spain, let's hope he succeeds with this.

Right on time! Aug 6, 2004

Thanks! Right on time for my trip to Madrid next September. I have been looking for places where I can eat good food without it costing me an arm and a leg. I will add these to the list.

fast good? Aug 6, 2004

This reminds me of the payoff in the advertising campaign of an Italian fast food chain serving pizza rather than hamburgers. That was something like "molto fast, very good" (molto = very) and I found it appalling, but probably suitable for the linguistically challenged average Italian Needless to say, I find traditional pizza much better, although of course it's more expensive.

I've never been to NY but I believe you Well, I'm looking forward to go to Madrid and try this new cuisine - hope it can be successful in Italy too.
