A venture into modernist cuisine

Spain’s El Bulli Three-Michelin-Star restaurant re-defined modernist cuisine for a generation and was declared the World’s Number One restaurant – but although this uber famous restaurant influenced the world’s fanciest restaurants, it is now closed. The predominantly Spanish wine cellar has been sold for $2.8 million dollars…

BUT here in Pittsburgh we can sample a flavor of that influence, (admittedly with more substance and less chemistry) at notion restaurant with a combination of modernist cuisine and handpicked Spanish wines by Jack Brice brought together for only 24 people on only one night.
