So... Aug 5, 2004

... waiting for a Fast Good restaurant to open in downtown Chicago, huh?

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 Italianicon_smile.gif Needless to say, I find traditional pizza much better, although of course it's more expensive.

Still better than "molto fasto, no problemo", which you would be likely to hear on the streets of New York City any day of the weekicon_lol.gif
