Nobody in the world makes restaurants like Albert Adrià, so when the Spanish celebrity chef (and younger brother of Ferran Adrià) announced his plans to create a place that would "reinvent the way we go to restaurants," it was clear that something very special was in the offing. And Adrià was as good as his word. You need a bar code to get into Enigma, which opened its doors at the start of 2017, and it takes several hours to literally wander through this culinary wonderland, which is spread over 7,534 square metres. The restaurant seats a maximum of 24 guests, who can feast on up to 40 taster dishes, an experience in which the physical properties of the delicacies meld into a harmonious whole. Yet in spite of all this, the atmosphere is not elitist, since it is imperative to celebrity chef Adrià that the focus should be exclusively on the food and the diner.
